I am trying to add error handling in my web.xml file.
here is the code:
It is not working correctly. It catchs Exceptions, but not RuntimeExceptions.
I had to add another code:
RuntimeExeption exteds Exception. Shouldn't be cought without adding the second code.

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