request attribute set in the jsp cannot be retrieved in the servlet

For a POC purpose i was trying to set an attribute in the request and application scope in a
page. The JSP code is:-
<% ArrayList al = new ArrayList(); al.add("1"); al.add("2"); request.setAttribute("List", al); application.setAttribute("List", al); %>
When i submit the JSP in the respective
i get the request attribute as null but the context attribute is retrieved properly.
The servlet code is :-
ArrayList al1 = (ArrayList) request.getAttribute("List"); System.out.println(al1); // prints null ArrayList al2 =(ArrayList)getServletContext().getAttribute("List"); System.out.println(al2); // prints [1, 2]
Please let me know why the request attribute is coming as null in the servlet while the context attribute is coming properly.
Thanks in advance.
