The application implicit variable is of type javax.servlet.ServletContext, which has the methods- getResource() and getResourceAsStream() to get a resource and getRequestDispatcher() to forward a request.
Although, you can also use 'config' to get ServletContext (and then call the above methods) but it is better to select 'application' because can be used directly.

Found this explaination there itself

The application implicit object represents a handle to the ServletContext. Look up ServletContext and you will see that is has methods for obtaining a Resource (getResource) and a RequestDispather (getRequestDispatcher).
