Customised Error page in case of exception in application server

Hi friends,

I am using WAS6.0(App server) and IHS(Web server) for my web application. I am facing one problem for showing customised error page in case of some exception occurs in application server. I have put ErrorDocument 500 in webserver (httpd.conf) which works if app server is down. But in case of exception in appserver it does not work. I have put <error-page> element in web.xml for 500 error-code and java.lang.Exception exception-type but it is still showing default page . Is there any other setting in appserver or webserver required for showing customised error page in case of exception in application server?

Thanks in advance,
Alok

Alok,
When you say "exception in the application server", do you mean in your ear file or in the WebSphere server code itself?

Hi Jeanne, I am trying in case of ServletException (if my servlets doPost method throws ServletException). And if some ways is available for ServletException to show customised error page then is it applicable for other exceptions also like NullPointerException?

Thanks,
Alok

I have this working in WAS 6.1.
Did you try updating the http plugin using the Integration Console?
Environment
Update global Web server plug-in configuration

Can you post an snippet of your web.xml?
Here is mine:

<error-page>
<exception-type>javax.servlet.ServletException</exception-type>
<location>/error.jsp</location>
</error-page>
