The JSDK framework uses the ServletException as a stansrad means of propogating and handling exceptions within a servlet. Exceptions if any within a servlet must be either converted to or wrapped around a ServletException of a subclass of ServletException. These are propogated to the servlet container which handles them suitably, according to its configuration.
