This question is from the SCWCD@Whiz trial: what is the method used in tag handler class to access JSP's attributes?
I think the answer is setAttribute_Name given that the attribute is required and provided in the JSP. But the correct answer provided is getAttribute_Name.
What is wrong with my understanding of the question or what is wrong with my understanding of accessing JSP's attributes?

That may be because, setAttribute_Name is called by the container before invoking the tag handler's methods. Then the tag handler can call getAttribute_Name to find out what was specified at the JSP page level.
Does this reasoning make sense?
