I have the following entry in my web.xml file:
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!
