Hi Fellow Ranchers,


I am trying to develop a JSP which would send a http response of 500 Server error

public void setHeader(java.lang.String name, java.lang.String value);
public void addHeader(java.lang.String name, java.lang.String value);

I am trying to use the following methords to set the http header response, can any one suggest what should use as key value pair

So when browser gets my page it is getting http 500 server error

rather than 200 OK status.

Thanks in advance.

Instead of setting headers manually, use the response.sendError method.
I agree. Here's the link:
