Our system uses apache and tomcat on linux boxes. Does anyone know how to configure tomcat to use a custom 404 error page? I can get a custom page (via apache) when someone enters a bad .html URL, but would like to have a custom page for when someone enters a bad .jsp URL.

the file entry (/jsp/errorPage404.jsp) must start with a / and is relative to the context home directory.
I agree. Here's the link:
