There are several ways to doing this, depending on how you want to use the object and whether you are using the JSTL expression language:
(1) Put it in the page context and access it from the page with the <jsp:useBean> tag
(2) Put it in the page context and access it from the page with the expression language (if you are using JSTL)
(3) Put it in the page context and, using the TLD or a TagExtraInfo class, declare that you want a scripting variable created on the JSP page so that you can access the object directly (e.g. <%= myObject.getX(); %>
Does that help, or do you need further implementation details?
