    Page scope too narrow?


      I'm using jPDL pageflows, and I've run across an annoying limitation of the page scope. Specifically, if I both access a page-scoped bean from an page action expression in a pageflow and through EL expressions on the actual page, it gets created twice: one time for the pageflow action, and another when the page starts rendering.

      The reason that's an annoying limitation is because I have beans that are used just for specific pages, and it seems overkill to make them conversation-scoped when they're just used by one page. But I also need to pass some settings to the page bean, so I use an action expression in the pageflow to initialize it. That seems to be the cleanest and least-coupled way of doing things, but in order to get that to work I'm having to make my page-specific beans conversation-scoped...
