I'm sure the error is being returned by Spring, I am trying to access a page I don't have authorization for. I'm just trying to show a custom jsp page in that case. Here is my spring security config:



Here is my servlet context:



I won't post datasource-tx.xml as this contains only database configs and I have verified by turning on debug that I am accessing the database without issues. Also there is nothing in my
root-context.xml
