I tried to look up the source but since you don't give the version I don't seem to have found the right one. However the similar code I did find suggests that the IllegalStateException comes from trying to send a Http error code AFTER the response has been committed.
The response gets committed automatically when the output buffer gets full so you might try setting a reallly larrrrrrge output buffer.

Hi thank you for reading this.
Sorry if it is too long.
I use struts 1.1 and Sitemesh 2.2.1 (latest version)
following is my code , you see the exception above

I used Sitemesh.xml from the sanple provided with sitemesh distro
and my decorators.xml is as follow :

<decorators defaultdir="/tiles">
<decorator name="main" page="mainLayout.jsp">
<pattern>*</pattern>


</decorator>
<decorator name="window" page="/decorators/window.jsp"/>
</decorators>


my mainLayout jsp file is as follow:

<%@taglib uri="http://www.opensymphony.com/sitemesh/page"
prefix="page"%>
<%@taglib uri="http://www.opensymphony.com/sitemesh/decorator"
prefix="decorator"%>
<html>
<head>
<title><decorator:title default="Jahan afrooz"></decorator:title> </title>
<LINK rel="stylesheet" href="theme/adt3.css" type="text/css">
<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="charset=UTF-8">
<%@taglib uri="/WEB-INF/page.tld" prefix="Page"%><%@ include file="includes/style.jsp" %>
<decorator:head></decorator:head>
</head>
<body>
<CENTER>
<TABLE border="0" width="100%" height="100%">
<TBODY>
<TR>
<TD width="58" height="235" colspan="2"><page:applyDecorator name="window" page="header.jsp" />
</TD>
<TD width="84" height="235"><page:applyDecorator name="window" page="search.jsp" /></TD>
</TR>
<TR>
<TD width="58" height="235" colspan="3"><page:applyDecorator name="window" page="menu.jsp" /></TD>
</TR>
<TR>
<TD width="58" height="235" rowspan="2"><page:applyDecorator name="window" page="news.jsp" /></TD>
<TD width="335" height="235" rowspan="2"><decorator:body/></TD>
<TD width="84" height="235"><page:applyDecorator name="window" page="login.jsp"/></TD>
</TR>
<TR><TD width="84" height="423"><page:applyDecorator name="window" page="poll.jsp" /></TD>
</TR>
<TR>
<TD width="58" colspan="3" height="21" align="center"><page:applyDecorator name="window" page="footer.jsp" /></TD>
</TR>
</TBODY>
</TABLE>
</CENTER>
</body>
</html>


I add the filter definition to web.xml as the sample file did.

Thank you for help

The primary cause of the exception may be something completely different, with the IllegalStateException occuring when the servlet tries to create another error message because the respons has already been comitted.
Some useful information should be showing up in the log files.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
