In the page 500(1st Edition), it says that a Tag File (a JSP file)
doesn't have access to a ServletContext, instead it has access to
a JspContext.

But the implicit object "application" is a ServletContext.
Isn't it? So a JSP page has access to a ServletContext.

Hi,

in tag file(.tag extension)is nothing about jsp,so you can access application . i think your are talking about Tag handler .

Tag handler is having its own behaviour(it is like java file)...so using pageContext you can access application

Which book?
Please QuoteYourSources.

And looks like you are confused with tag files and JSP.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
