That's fairly accurate. The tag is used in a JSP to instantiate a bean if it hasn't been instantiated already, and to simply use it if it has. The bean can then be accessed in that page as well as in servlets and other JSPs depending on the scope you give it (session, application, request, page). Have you read any books or tutorials on JSP?
