I am trying to save a ArrayList of values in sesssion scope. This is basically a Shopping cart which is storing all the items in basket. If I use the method request.setAttribute(String, Object) it will store my values in request scope. If I use session.setAttribute(String, Object) will my method have a global scope in the application? And will I be able to access this from any jsp/servlet pages?

Session is not global scope

Request, application or sessions are completely different types of scopes available in a web application.

When you ask for global, session is not global scope, it is per user (to be more specific, for one browser).

Yes, values in the session would be available in JSPs and access the same, but only for that user
