Mixing Scripting Variables and Local Scopes in JSP

Hello,

I am using scripting elements (in JSP )to create objects that I then want to let actions access, I want to place them in the appropriate scope, which I am doing as under:

...
<%
userInfo = new Member1();
pageContext.setAttribute("userInfo", userInfo);
%>
<jsp:getProperty name="userInfo"
property="firstName" />

I want to ask the following qtns:
1) What will be the scope of this Object userInfo?
2) If a bean object with the same name already exists, what will
happen?
All suggestion\answers are welcome,
Thanx,

Milan
