Hi all,
I am new to Portlets and confused about the Portlet Session Scope. Shall appreciate if any one could explain this to me.

Here is my understanding of the Portlet Session Scope.
1. If the Portlet Session Scope is set to "Application Scope", the attributes are visible to all portlets of the same WAR-file. Am I correct?

1.a. Is it visible to all portlet windows of the portlets of the same WAR-file across different pages of the same portal?

2. If set to "Portlet Scope", the attributes are accessible/visible only in the same Portlet?

2.a. Does this hold good for all windows of the same Portlet across pages in the same portal?

Your replies can be in refernce to either JSR-168 based, JSR-286 based or IBM Portlet APIs.

Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards,
NRao
