PageContext is a JSP concept and has nothing to do with servlets.

Hi Todd,
Well ServletRequest is related to Servlet while pageContext is related to JSP which is known as implicit variable.

By using pageContext you can set or/and get attributes from any scope.

When you are working with JSP's.

I think you mean to ask :What is the difference between ServletContext and pageContext,is it?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
