hi all: I am trying to add error handling in my web.xml file. here is the code: <error-page> <exception-type>java.lang.Exception</exception-type> <location>/errorPage.jsp</location> </error-page> It is not working correctly. It catchs Exceptions, but not RuntimeExceptions. I had to add another code: <error-page> <exception-type>java.lang.RuntimeException</exception-type> <location>/errorPage.jsp</location> </error-page> RuntimeExeption exteds Exception. Shouldn't be cought without adding the second code. thanks

RuntimeException, or a class derived from it, is different from other subclasses of Exception in that it is an UncheckedException.
