Hi there... Can anybody in the saloon put light on ... If we extend a class in jsp with the page directive attribute "extends"...then how can we handle the request and response as by default a jsp extends httpServlet after translation.

Dont worry about the request and response as the class your jsp extends ought to subclass from HttpServletRequest at some point in its hirearchy. It would throw an error otherwise and hence should be the least of your concerns. Read the quote below to learn what you should be worried about.
From the jsp 2.0 spec
This attribute should not be used without careful consideration as it restricts the ability of the JSP container to provide specialized superclasses that may improve on the quality of rendered service.
