Exception in init

If an exception occurs in doPost or doGet method of the servlet we redirect it to an errorjsp.
We are looking up for the Home Object in init() method. If this process fails the response object is not available for redirecting. How do we handle this?
Any suggestions would be highly appreciable.

Thanks & Regards,<br />Nijeesh.

Have a boolean filed as false initially
and when u get an exception while look up of ur home, catch it within the init and in the catch block change the boolean value to true
then in the doPost or on doGet method just before doing any processing check first the value of the boolean,
if true (exception has occured) redirect to
proper error page
if false ( no exception has occured ) simply walk through...
