Hello anoop
well in code 1, if you open multiple browser windows, then in that case value will hold the latest value .. for example
suppose you declare value as
<%! int value=0 ; %>
and in your code suppose you do
<% value=value+1;%>
then when you open one browser value you will get the value of the variable "value" as 1.

Again if you open another window and re run your code and get the value of the variable "value" then it will not hold one it will hold two.
So in this case the value is persistent
Where as in code 2 the variable "value" will remain local for each particular session.
i hope this clears your doubt .. in case i am wrong correct me or in case you didnt get it ... send a reply
