JSP.2.3.3 Errors, Warnings, Default Values JSP pages are mostly used in presentation, and in that usage, experience suggests that it is most important to be able to provide as good a presentation as possible, even when there are simple errors in the page. To meet this requirement, the EL does not provide warnings, just default values and errors. Default values are typecorrect values that are assigned to a subexpression when there is some problem. An error is an exception thrown (to be handled by the standard JSP machinery).[/QUOTE]
What does it mean to say : to be handled by the standard JSP machinery Any body please responde.

OUTPUT AT SERVER: SRVE0026E: [Servlet Error]-[/view1.jsp]: javax.servlet.jsp.el.ELException: Unable to find a value for "empID" in object of class "sri.wcd.Person" using operator "."
The exception that is being thrown at the server, is ELException which is not a runtime exception, take a look at the javadoc for ELException and you will see it inherits from Exception, not RuntimeException.
