Hi all.

I have a problem where if someone enters an invalid url into the browser, then the server returns 'Invalid Path error'. For example, if a .do call is bookmarked, that is not actually a valid page to request.

Is there a way of specifying a catch-all page which is automatically forwarded to when nothing is found? The exception/error page doesn't come into affect here as there isn't actually any exception thrown.

Thanks for any advice!

Hi,
I think you can define that at web deployment descriptor (web.xml).
That is at error-page element
So when the container receive an HTTP error then it will redirect to an error page which you define at web.xml.

Correct me if I am wrong...

thanks

You mean something like this?

<error-page>
<error-code>500</error-code>
<location>/error.jsp</location>
</error-page>

The problem is how do I specify an error code if one isn't thrown?
