Subject Request attributes?
Date Wed, 05 Dec 2001 17:14:16 GMT
A bit confused.

Looking at org.apache.cocoon.environment.Request (basically it's just a ServletRequest object).
 I see that a Request has both parameters and attributes.

I know what request parameters are.  These are the form values in your HTML form that get
submitted to the servlet.

But what are request attributes?   I don't know how it works elsewhere, but at least with
Cocoon these seem to always be empty.

1) What are they for?

2) Am I allowed to use these for my own personal use; i.e., as sort of a temporary storage
area?  (e.g., request.setAttribute(String name, Object o) )
