How can I tell when I am in the request scope and/or the response scope.

Hello,

I am maintaining a coldfusion application that was developed by another developer.
In the code are references to items in the request scope e.g. <cfset request.datasource="DataSourceName"> or <cfset request.VariableName="DataValue">I understand that these are variables defined in the request scope but I am not sure that I understand the "scope" (if you will) of the request scope. That is, for variables defined in the request scope, when/where are they accessible. Is it before a page is sent to the server, after a page returns from the server, both, or it doesn't matter?

Same question for response. For example there is a response scope in (in believe) classic ASP that allows you to code "response.write("data_to_write"). At what time is a web page in the response scope.

Also, if you are familiar with a good source of information on this subject I would appreciate a reference to it, although this third part of the question is not necessary to be awarded the points.

Thanks much,
