What is the proper way to get the exception object using EL on an error page? I have tried ${pageContext.exception} but it returns null (<%= exception %> works on the same page).

exception implicit object is available ONLY to error pages with an explicitly defined page directive attribute isErrorPage=true

Just configuring error page in DD is not enough to make the Container give that page implicit exception object. The below should work
