let's say there are two jsp files, main.jsp file and included.jsp

main.jspa has: <jsp:include page="/WEB-INF/includes/included.jsp" />

I have two questions:

1) my understanding is: the local variables(property) in main.jsp can't be seen in included.jsp, so can local variables in included.jsp be seen in main.jsp?

2) if I set the scope as "request" in main.jsp <jsp:useBean id="requestBean" class="coreservlets.BakedBean" scope="request" />, it seems that the variables(property) can be seen in the included.jsp? does this mean if there is no indication of scope, the default scope is "page"?

thanks
