Sometimes I have Servlets in my Tomcat 4.1.27 container that display information and there might be times when an Exception happens. I like to have a redirect to show a user friendly error page. The below is how I have been doing it and was wondering if this is the proper way to do it where the error message goes to the Tomcat log file and the page redirects.

It is not the proper way. Rather you should not catch the exception at all. Declare your error page(es) in the web.xml. The Servlet Specificatin spells all of this out in the error handling section.

cmbhatt,

In the error page you will not have "code that may cause the exception" rather you may have code that generate useful message to the user about what the problem was.

regards,

Majid

Hi

U said <error-page> in web.xml
my Quest. is where we write <error-page> tag i.e.in servlet tag or
servlet-mapping tag.


Thanks in Advance

Does this mean if it generates an error/exception in the action/service class it will log the error and redirect to the error.jsp?

Kishore there is no error tag in servlet or servlet-mapping tag. There is a separate tag called

<error-page> and the attributes of these are

<error-code>
<exception-type>
<location>
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
