Hi,

I'm trying to add some custom error pages to my application:

<error-page>
<error-code>404</error-code>
<location>/error404.jsp</location>
</error-page>

But instead I just get this when running on the j2ee preview server in eclipse.

HTTP ERROR 404

Problem accessing /app/asdf. Reason:

NOT_FOUND

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Have you tried running it outside Eclipse, in a real server?

Hi,

I just tested on a Tomcat server, and it's working. Would still be nice if I could test locally before deploying, but I can't find any settings in the j2ee preview that has anything to do with this. Any suggestions?

thanks

I'm not an IDE expert. I'll move this to our IDE forum where someone might be able to help.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
