HttpSession vs PageContext

If I am in a servlet and have an instance of PageContext, say pageContext, and I do:
pageContext.setAttribute(SESSION_BEAN_NAME, bean, PageContext.SESSION_SCOPE);
or I have an instance of HttpSession, say session, and store the bean in there:
session.setAttribute(SESSION_BEAN_NAME, bean);
What is the difference for this? Both ways I can still use in my JSP page <jsp:useBean id="whatever" scope="session" ... /> and have access to my bean. Or is there a difference?
Thanks!
