As per my understanding calling pageContext.setAttribute(key,object) stores the object in page scope.My question is whether it is stored inside pageContext.Means like implicit Object, requestScope and applicationScope,pageContext is also a map.(or)pageContext is just a way to store the objects inside any of the scopes.
Are Objects with page scope stored in the PageContext(implicit object)???
We're pleased to have you here with us in the FORUM_NAME forum, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.
In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
The request object stores its attributes in some way. The pageContext object stores its attributes in some way.
How these objects store their attributes is irrelevant to you. They could be stored in a map (and probably are) but they don't have to be. The implicit objects revealed to EL as Maps: pageScope, requestScope, sessionScope etc etc are seperate.
So you have two implicit variables. pageContext - for accessing the pageContext object pageScope - for accessing the attributes stored in the pageContext. It gets them by calling pageContext.getAttribute()
