- page: This implicit object is assigned a reference to the servlet. Page is a instace of JSP page’s servlet processing the current request.This is a synonym for this, it means we can simpy use this keyword in place of page implicit object.

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<% out.print("Welcome to W3adda.com");%>
