I am just new to servlets having just set up environment the other day. In my doPost Method of an HttpServlet I have:
switch (err)
res.sendError(HttpServletResponse.SC_BAD_REQUEST, "information already on file");
res.sendError(HttpServletResponse.SC_BAD_REQUEST, "information not on file");
however when the code executes I get a page not found error instead of the error message, could someone suggest why, is it something to do with my configuration?
edit: I just noticed that the error page does have the correct error code. does this mean IE 5.0 only has a generic message?
thanks in advance.
