custom error page

Hi I have to show a custom error page in tomcat.

I know this can be done by making an entry in web.xml

But there i have to specify each and every error response and errorpage.jsp.

Is there any way that i can specify a custom error page(I have only 1 error page to be displayed for all errors) if any in the world exception occurs ? I definitely do not want the visitor to have a look at the stack trace at all.

Thanks in advance for help

There is nothing Tomcat-specific about this so it's been moved to the Servlets forum.

This is pseudo code how you can do it in web.xml
