jsp pageContext.findAttribute method

I would like to know more about jsp  pageContext.findAttribute method. I would like to know where, when, how, why we use it. I am not able to find good examples on it.
Please advise. Any ideas, sample code, resources highly appreciated. Thanks
in advance.

The above example are some basic understanding examples . Can you clearly tell what kind of example you expect ?

ValeriCommented:
the output of the example shows attributes in the different scopes.
Request and Session sections are empty, because you still have not put any attributes in this scopes. If for example you put some attribute in the session scope, for example : session.setAttribute("user", someUserObject); it has to be shown there.
That is the meaning - example loops through all kind of scopes and shows the attributes in each one of them. Hope it will help you.

I am looking for simple example which uses
pageContext.findAttribute



Can you please advise. Above example is still not clear why they are setting scopes( i thought scopes are implicit right, what is the necessity of declaring and assigning seperately) and then scope names and then simply printing.






How can i modify above code to make it more meaningful. Please advise
