PAGE scope means a hashmap that is stored in the JSF ViewRoot, it's for a particular page, for a particular user (even bound to request/response cycles), and it's not stateless. Read up on JSF to understand what the view is and where it is stored (state manager in JSF offers choice here).

Suppose, the user stays on the same page when working with page scoped data (only page parts are refreshed with ajax), is it ok to put the data in ScopeType.PAGE in this case?
Actually, that is the primary purpose of the PAGE context. Assuming that all the requests are POSTbacks on the same JSF view (Ajax requests typically are).
@Christian: Thanks for explaining. I will study some JSF docs for further infos :-)
