hi,
i wonder how to use a RequestDispatcher to forward the request to an error page? i forward the request to a servlet which use sendError() to send an error back. But the second servlet doesn't work. And i heard there is something should be specified in teh deployment descriptor file. your help is greatly appreciated
regards

What about forwarding directly to the error.jsp page? Make sure you are not outputting anything before attempting a forward.

Another option, what about using an include? This will go out the specified resource, and it will then return to the calling resource (the one doing the include).
