If we make JSP files not depend on Servlets, we may want to expose the JspContext object, not the PageContext object.
Can someone explain what does the above statement means.
When does " JSP files not depend on Servlets" ?Arent all jsp files going to get converted into servlets everytime

well, in modern servlet specifications (what is it, 2.4 I think?) it is possible to use JSP syntax in a file to create a tag library, that is instead of creating Java class that extends the Tag support class and creating a .tld descriptor XML file, it is possible to create a WEB-INF/tags folder,and inside there, create a folder for each tag library (prefix), and a JSP-syntax file, with the ".tag" extension, that will be compiled into a Java class that extends the JSP tag support class, instead of a servlet.
