I'm working with a jspfile which outputs data to web page, but i don't understand were the data is magically taken.
The code is such:

Where is "pagingHolder.myQueryResults" defined? It seems to be a dataset, but i don't understand where is the location where this dataset is filled?
The JSP-code as you see don't import any "pagingHolder" module. Maybe in some kind of xml-file there is a connection that says that global variable "pagingHolder" refers to a Java class?

I looked, it looks like this there:

It does not explain where is defined thing called "sessionScope.cart.items" and how it is filled with data.
I think i better go through entire J2EE tutorial to get answer to myself.

It is most likely established by the page controller.
