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.

>>> If for example you put some attribute in the session scope, for example : session.setAttribute("user", someUserObject); it has to be shown there.



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
