Jsp implicit objects are available to tag handlers through the
pageContext object (or (PageContext)getJspContext() for simple
tags). In the book, the only use of these context objects is
1)pageContext.getOut() and 2)pageContext.setAttribute(). What
about all the other implicit objects like request and response.
Also, is there some convention (ie the implicit object is 'out',
but the method called is 'getOut()'.

Thanks,

Ken

Look up the JavaDoc on PageContext. IF you understand how the dot notation works (which you need to know for the exam) you can figure out how to access the properties of the pageContext object

HINT - .out executes the getOut method
