Scopes in JSP

In JSP you can create attributes in four scopes: page, request, session and application. If you need to access them Expression Language such as c:out tag, you can specify the scope explicitly.

Here are some examples:
<c:out value=”${pageScope.maxAttempts}” />
<c:out value=”${requestScope.maxAttempts}” />
<c:out value=”${sessionScope.maxAttempts}” />
<c:out value=”${applicationScope.maxAttempts}” />

If you try to display a value without specifying a scope, it first looks the value in the pageScope, requestScope, sessionScope and finally applicationScope. If it finds a value it displays otherwise it display ‘empty‘. Remember you won’t see null in the expression language.
