Hi, everyone
When i hit url like
http://hostname ort/contextroot/a.jsp
if a.jsp doesn't exist i get websphere error page.
JSP Processing Error JSPG0036E :
Failed to find resource a.jsp
Can somebody know how to custom such error page by websphere setting?

It can be done by the usual way of customising error pages by declaring the customised jsp against 404 error in the web.xml by adding the below entry.

<error-page >
<error-code >404 </error-code >
<location>/xxyyzz.jsp </ location >
</ error-page>

But I am not sure if I understand your question correctly because this is common place and you are already SCWCD certified. Can you be more specific if this does not answer your question?

For some strange reason, after I added above tag to the web.xml, I am stilling getting the standard 404 page from WAS. Did I miss something?

Thanks for your time.
