Hi, here are my problems

Problem 1)

This is part of my web.xml:

<error-page>
<exception-type>java.lang.NumberFormatException</exception-type>
<location>/errorNumber.jsp</location>
</error-page>

<error-page>
<exception-type>java.lang.Throwable</exception-type>
<location>/error.jsp</location>
</error-page>

But when I throw a NumberFormatException from my JSP then error.jsp is called instead of errorNumber.jsp.

Problem 2)

In my error.jsp the statement ${pageContext.exception} will not print anything, although on top of the page I have <%@ page isErrorPage="true" %> and <%@ page isELIgnored="false" %>.

I am using Tomcat 5.0.28

Since Throwable is the base class for all the Exception Type, i think the error.jsp page is executed.. why not use specific exception type to get rid of it. i.e. try it without using the throwable exception case.
