we have <%@useBean id = "myBean" class = "com.junk.MyBeanClass" scope = "page">  
in a jsp called "MyFirstJSP.jsp"

This is equilaent to
<%
MyClassBean myBean = new MyClassBean();
%>

My question is in the scope attribute.

page "the bean is there as long as the page is active"
---> Does this mean the scope of the object is throughout the page and when the user moves from the page the object is not avaioable

request "the bean is avaialbale for the target of the page ..."
--->is the scope avaibale for the request , which means if the page is forward to nect page , i need not create a new object but use the existing object

session "the bean is accesibke from any jsp page participate in the session"
---> I can use the objecy anywhere i want in all the pages for that particular session. ie I can load user info such as name , login , passowrd in a bean and call it anywhere without making a new object in each page.

ie in MySecondJSP.jsp I can use  "myBean.getInfo() " without ceating the obejct in the second page

appication "the bean ia avaibale throuhg the appication"
---> I can call the object of the bean anywhere i want an example is to store some name values pais similar to servelt context.

Thx for ur help :)

page - yes
request - yes
session - yes
application - yes (application isn't *similar* to servlet context, it *is* servlet context)

Not quite...  It's equivalent to:

<%
   MyClassBean myBean = new MyClassBean();
   pageContext.setAttribute( "myBean", myBean );
%>

Hmm..

In my app, I have user info , contact info and other info as session beans and get them in each page. SO I can now replace them with javs use bean .

How is it advantageous - session attributes and/or  use bean

Thanks.

They are the same.
If in JSP you have the following  

      <jsp:useBean id="greeting" class="java.lang.String"/>
      <% greeting = "hello"; %>
      <%=greeting%>    

then Tomcat will translate it  to the following. (look in Tomcat's work folder)


   java.lang.String greeting = null;
synchronized (pageContext) {
    greeting = (java.lang.String) pageContext.getAttribute("greeting", PageContext.PAGE_SCOPE);
    if (greeting == null){
    try {
         greeting = (java.lang.String) java.beans.Beans.instantiate(this.getClass().getClassLoader(), "java.lang.String");
        } catch (ClassNotFoundException exc) {
            throw new InstantiationException(exc.getMessage());
        } catch (Exception exc) {
            throw new ServletException("Cannot create bean of class " + "java.lang.String", exc);
        }
          pageContext.setAttribute("greeting", greeting, PageContext.PAGE_SCOPE);
        }
}
out.write("\r\n");
greeting = "hello";       out.write(" \r\n");
out.print(greeting);
