I have the following entry in my web.xml file: <error-page> <exception-type> javax.servlet.UnavailableException </exception-type> <location> /MyErrorPage.html </location> </error-page> I also have a servlet class that throws UnavailableException in its doGet() method. However, MyErrorPage.html is not displayed when I make a request to the servlet. What is wrong??? Please help.

Just to add: When I change "javax.servlet.UnavailableException" to "javax.servlet.ServletException" in the <exception-type> tag of web.xml and throw UnavailableException in my servlet, the specified html page is displayed. I m using Tomcat 4.0.1. Please help! Thanks.
