Can anybody please help me by telling me the differences between page and pageContext?
I have gone through Java Server Programming(wrox press),but I couldn't understand anything.
I would be pleased if you can tell me the difference with a simple example.

Thanks in advance

as far as i know page by itself has no meaning in JSP, its used as
<%@page attribute1="value1",attribute2="value2"... %>
which says this is a page directive: value1 for attribute1 and value2 for attribute2 holds good only for this page!
pageContext on the other hand is an object of class PageContext and it acts as a container for variables defined in a page and the life of these variables is equal to teh life of the jsp page they are defined in.
hope this helps.

page is a reference to the servlet implementation of the JSP. It is not generally useful. pageContext is a reference to the PageContext instance for the current JSP page.

With pageContext implicit object we can derive all other implicit objects

Like we can get out object from getOut method which is available.
