Well I have set errorPage for handling errors.But The errorPage is not showing instead I get This:
'The page cannot be displayed
There is a problem with the page you are trying to reach and it cannot be displayed.'
//badPage.jsp


//errorPage.jsp


When I remove the cause of Arithmetic exception ,the page loads.But when
the cause exists then the problem.

Most of the programming problems can't be solved because you don't know what the exact problem is.
Defining your problem correctly leads you to the right solution.

Where is your errorPage.jsp located under the web application's directory?

Location of errorPage.jsp is fine.The problem arrives when exception raises.
That means when I remove the line <%int x=10/0;%> then there is no problem.Error is handled by erroPage but the page does not show.
Because the Tomcat does not show divide/by zero exception.It shows when
I remove the errorPage directive.

please clarify this.

Edited : The errorPage is showing in firefox but not in IE 6.

why so?

It seems to be a Internet Explorer specific issue ( this is how it is behaving by default). Try disabling the "Show friendly HTTP error messages" from the Internet Explorer's advance options tab.
