Implicit objects are Java objects in JSP which will be created by the servlet container. usually, if we want to access any data in a class, we have to create an object using a new operator and then access the methods on that object. for implicit objects, we can use them directly on JSP pages.
JSP is used in MVC model architecture soi will separate presentation logic with model logic. JSP is used as presentation logic which we can use the objects without creating the instances.
In servlets API, we have to create the objects, call the methods on the objects. but to use the servlet-specific information in JSP, implicit objects can be used without creating an object.
