Hi all:
When I used tomcat 5, I meet a wierd problem.
What I wanna do is to direct all errors to one shared error page. I don't like to add
a directive <%@ page errorPage="xxx" %>, so I add an error page entry in web.xml.
<error-page>
<exception-type>java.lang.Exception</exception-type>
<location>/error.jsp</location>
</error-page>
The error.jsp has a directive <%@ page isErrorPage="true" %>
But it doesn't work.
I also tried the error status code:
<error-page>
<error-code>404</error-code>
<location>/404.jsp</location>
</error-page>
It doesn't work either.
Can anyone give an idea?
Thanks.

Make sure you are throwing that exception or any exception derived from it. Also verify that IE is not set to show friendly http error msgs. Tools->Internet Options->Advanced. "Show friendly http error messages" should not be checked.

We have duplicate conversations happening.
Please don't post the same question in multiple forums, it wastes the time of the pople trying to help you.
Anyone who wants to help should see the copy here.

Dave.
