hi buys
i am new to jsp and now i am confused about the scope attribute in <jsp:useBean> tag, what's the difference between these four (request,page,session,application)? And how to use them correctly?

request scope means, The Bean can exist for that request only.
Once next request comes, a new bean is accessed. Old bean does not exist.
lly for Session scope, Bean(or it's data accessability) will exist for entire session, means more than one request can have access to the same bean.
For application scope, bean can exist until application is closed
So more than one user/session may share same bean.
Page scope? sorry I am clear about it, I guess it will hold good for one page only..
