JSTL errors causes page to half-load

Every so often, I have an error in the JSTL I write for my JSP's, such as a typo. This causes the page to not render properly. It's as if the browser decided to quit halfway (or even less). I don't see any meaningful error messages or any exception, just a half-rendered page.

Is this behaviour normal? It's a real pain to debug because I can only walkthrough the code carefully before finding my mistake. Is there a more efficient way to solve these problems?

(I'm using Tomcat 5.5, JSTL 1.2 and have set error pages, which work fine when my framework throws an exception)

Thanks.

Have you checked the logs?

Yes, logs did not show any problems. Typically these should show up in the jasper.log?

In this case, probably not.

It sounds like a runtime problem that is happening after the response has started sending output to the client.

Jasper is the JSP compiler that converts your JSP code into generated servlet code. If something in Jasper blew up, you never would have reached the point where output is being generated.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
