Hi there. The page implicit object is something which you can bind attributes to... it's another scope which JSPs can use. Don't confuse it with the pageContext object, which is an object that has convience methods like getRequest(), getSession(), getPage(), getAttribute(String name, int scope), findAttribute(), etc. The pageContext implicit object is of type PageConetext (which extends JspContext), and the page variable is of type Object (well at least at compile time), but it actually receives a reference to the actual servlet which is executing the _jspService() method).
Hi, Thanks for your reply. So "page" is like an implicit "this" reference to the servlet. So I can access all the instance variables and methods in that servlet..I can also pass the "this" ref to some other method. Is my understanding right ?
