Hi,

<%@page session="true" %>

I'm not getting the meaning of session attribute.
Please explain this.

Hi, Swapnel. The page that declares <%@page session="true" %>, tells the container that this page participates in session. So the container creates session implicit object. If it is declared with "false", the container will not provide session implicit object. So, is not able to participate in the session.

Hi, Swapnel. If we say<%@ page session="false" %>, then the session will not available to the page, even if you call pageContext.getSession() in scriptlet.
