I have a JSP that shows a JavaBean value that is fetched from my Oracle database. The bean class uses a helper Database connection class (DbConnClass) to connect to the database. Everything is working where the bean fetches the database info and I use the Getter and Setter methods to show the information. My only issue is how do I show the JSP if the database is not available. Currently I have ugly scriplets but was wondering if there is another way?
