I am trying to get my servlet's exception forwarded to error page defined in the web.xml.
In web.xml I have,
And in my servlet, I am throwing ServletException.
As per the Servlet 2.3 specs, the exception should be forwarded to the error page.
The errorPage1.jsp has the following directive -
<%@ page language="java" isErrorPage="true" %>
But, when my servlet throws error, I just see a "Page Not Found" on my browser.
In the tomcat cache, I see the erroPage1.jsp converted into a servlet and compiled. This means that it is being requested, but the browser, instead of showing the contents of the errorPage1.jsp, just shows "Page Not Found"
Is there something I missed ?

Please don't post the same question in multiple forums. It creates duplicate conversations and wastes the time of the people trying to help you.
Anyone who wants to help should see this thread.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
