I am using the following error page tag in my web.xml.


I try to call a page which does not exist. i get the following output HTTP 404 - File not found, but the container does not redirect the control to PageNotFound.jsp as has been configured in web.xml. Is there something else i need to add to web.xml.

thnx in advance

Do a search on your problem in this forum...

Basically I'm guessing your using IE, which has like a "use friendly error pages" setting. If that switch is flicked, you wont see the custom error page.

Hi Dave,
I disabled the option in browser and it is working fine. Thanks a lot.
