Assume that you want to create a Web application in Spring MVC, which allows to browse either users or test modules (where data for these two tables comes either from a database, from RDF or from an XML - your free choice). Assume that the offset and limit is provided as query parameters for for each request (scope="request"), favorite background color for the table of results is set for the user session, i.e. it persists until the user closes the browser screen or explicitly changes the settings (scope="session"), but the alphabetical ordering is "ascending" or "descending" depending on a custom "interaction scope", i.e. it does not change when user browses only users or only modules, but is reset, whenever user switches.
Implement this by remembering these parameters in Spring configured beans having appropriate scope.
