1. this is homework
2. read your book
3. <%! is for method/class declaration
4. <% this stuff goes into doGet()/doPost() when converted to servlet (which all jsps are)

ok, well then 3 and 4 answer your question anyway.

ie:

<%!
   private String saySomething(String s) {
      return s;
   }
%>

try and do the above w/o the !

<%
   out.println(saySomething("Hello World")); // this gets executed automatically on page load
%>

I agree with everything that bobbit31 posted.
Also,
the scriptlet is thread safe, but the declaration is not safe because it is inserted into the main body of the servlet class.  
The declaration is a place to store data that is persistent between requests.
You can put a inner class in a declaration.

One more thing.
You could use a declaration to override the jspInit and jspDestroy methods of your JSP.

Just a note ... though not any different from the other posts...

<%!
int a = 0
%>

when the JSP is converted to servelt code by the engine it put this seperately like a method in your program that can be accesed from anywhere.

<%
int a = 0
%>     is duplicated in the servcice() method of the servelt as is where is

Hope this helps
Cheers!
