Currently reading documentation of classes of javax.servlet.jsp.tagext package.
The JSP page implementation object invokes setPageContext and setParent, in that order, before invoking doStartTag() or doEndTag().

what is JSP page implementation object? does he mean jsp's corresponding servelt here?

The JSP implementation object would be provided by the server/container you are working in.
ie the container implements the JSP specification.

>does he mean jsp's corresponding servelt here?
Close but not exactly. Because the JSP doesn't specifically define those methods.
I think it would be more whatever class provided by the container implements the JspPage interface.

You will probably find a better definition here
I agree. Here's the link:
