error page

Hi all.

I'm studying the topic about creating my own error pages and how to recover from that.
I've created a small test that is made of 2 JSPs. The first JSP (Result.jsp) is a page that use a custom EL that can generate a java.lang.ArithmeticException.
The second JSP is the errorPage (error.jsp).

When I declare my error-page like the code that follows, the stack trace is presented to the browser instead of my error page.

But when I declare my error page at DD like the code below it works perfectly:

Indeed, the java.lang.ArithmeticException occurs at the class that implements my custom EL.
So, that's my doubt: I'd like to know, if there is any way to map an Exception that may occur bottom at the exception stack.

Hi Adolfo,

Nice experiment ..!!

There is no way out to map your actual Exception to your ELException.

Resoan is, Normally EL expression methods in API throw javax.el.ELException which is RuntimeException.

Hi Adolfo,
Can you provide the EL expression that throws javax.el.ELException. I have been trying to simulate your example but without any success. My error page is working even if I define it in DD with java.lang.ArithmeticException.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools

It's not a secret anymore!
