It's not that clear, can you elaborate your question a bit?

There are in all many ways to handle exceptions on jsp's

1) Using Scriptlets (very simple but too slow on 1st request)

2) Mention errorPage in page directive

Scriptlets? There are far better options like JSTL,EL. Scriplets must be avoided.
