Custom error page in JSF.

Hi!

By default, if an exception occurs in a JSF application, it blurts out a very ugly stack trace onto the console. I want it to be presented in a nice form with proper information about the various backing beans, the request, session states, etc and finally the stack trace.

Is there a way to present such a customized error page.

Thanks.

Not really. But I've found that Facelets can make it less of a guessing game.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

Hi Tim!

I am aware of the Facelets api but unfortunately, currently, i have to stick to the JSF-JSP combo. Is there a way to, maybe, develop some custom component, which would sort of give a much better picture of the JSF environ when an exception occurs. Like, if you use the "Wicket" framework, it exactly pinpoints where the problem, which is something, yet again, missing in JSF :-(

Thanks.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
