Best suggestion I can offer off the top of my head would be to write custom error pages for each application you're hosting, and a generic one for the entire server.

For the entire server, you're going to want to include this code in your $CATALINA_HOME/conf/web.xml file to block 404 errors (for example):


But, basically, if you override the default functionality, it should help you hide the footer that lists the version.

Hi
Create a error.jsp page and include the following in your web.xml file. Hope this might be of some help.

<web-app>

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

[Here goes your servlet mappings and welcome file lists]

</web-app>

I know where to create error.jsp but still I'll like to know where 404.jsp is located as I'll prefer jsu to remove version info from there.

thanks
