sessionScope is an implicit object available in JSP. This is why you can use the sessionScope.bean.property method of getting at a value. If you do not specify a scope, and instead just use bean.property, I'm assuming that the container looks through all of the scopes to find the object that you specify and in your case finds it in the session scope. It will take a bit of brushing up on JSP to remember all of this for sure, so someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this is the general idea.
