I am studying Hanumant study kit for SCWCD. There I came across the page directive errorPage attribute. I tried it using a very simple example but unable to get the error page upon runtime exception.
My index.html code is :
My Servlet just gets a requestdispatcher and using forward method directs the request to result.jsp.
My result.jsp is:
Note here that i have use the directive
So it should throw a run time exception if i do not supply any value to username and should direct the page to ErrorHandler.jsp which is in the same directory as result.jsp. But i do not get any exception , neither does my page gets directed. what mistake am i making ?? can anyone help out??
