Let's imagine I have a servlet that will dispatch to a jsp page. Ignoring for the moment whether or not it would even make any sense, is it possible for this servlet to stuff an attribute into the PAGE CONTEXT of the dispatched-to jsp? (By page context, I mean that which is represented by the implicit object pageContext within a scriptlet on the jsp page (I know I know, well-behaved web developers never write scriptlets, I know).)
Th�nks in advance, John

No, page context is for single JSPs only; servlets don't have access to that. The request context would be right for sharing objects in this case.
