scope related question

It is mentioned that when the attributes are not found in pageScope then they are looked for in request and then session and then application.

But what if i have mentioned the scope=session and it doesnt get the attribute there ......... will it start searching from page or will search in only applicationscope as only that thing comes after session scope in the hierarchy .... ?

I am not sure about this, but i think if you are going to mislead the container, it will not like it
So, if you say that its in the session scope, it better be there !!!

apigee, a better way to API!

If you explicitly tell in which scope to look for, the container won't look anywhere else.
