This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
There are several ways of storing information to be shared as servlets and JSPs forward to and include each other. I'm confused by the differences between "page context," "request context," the session, and the application. I'm also confused by what syntax to use reference these objects using Java code in a servlet versus the syntax used in a JSP. Is there a good book or other source that clearly explains server/servlet/JSP lifecycle and clarifies the code used to reference each of these objects?
