accessing implicit objects using JSP tags

If you need to produce JSPs that are 100% Java-free, is there an
alternative notation, using XML JSP tags, for accessing implicit objects such as request. E.g. for:
<%= request.getAttribute("return") %>

Can't seem to find it anywhere.
many thanks

Since a JSP is basically a Java servlet, you have to use Java to get the values of the implicit objects. How could it be otherwise?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
