I was reading page 461 of HeadFirstSJ, where it is written in handwriting,
Note: the exception implicit object is available ONLY to error pages
with an explicitly-defined page directive.
In other words, configuring an error page in the DD is not enough to make
the Container give that page the implicit exception object!
My confusion: I am using apache-tomcat-5.5.23.
I configured error page in the Deployment Descriptor. But I didn't
explicitly define the <%@page isErrorPage="true"%> in my errorPage.jsp
and it is still working. Is it something container specific?
What is the reason?
