Hi,

I have the following

<error-page>
        <error-code>*</error-code>
        <location>errorPage.jsp</location>
    </error-page>

in my web.xml

However can't make the errorPage.jsp handle the errors.
It is still the error.jsp that is being used.

How is <error-page> used ?

Hi,
I don't think an asterisk will work (have you seen it work in another appserver?). The error-code expects an http error like 404 or 500. Alternatively you can specify an exception-type, e.g. org.foo.MyException.
If you want a default error page for every possible error, WebSphere provides an extension to the web.xml. This means you will have to specify it somewhere else, not in web.xml.
If you use wsad for development it will automatically create ibm-web-ext.xmi for this purpose which suites was 4 or 5. If you use was 3.5 just use the adminconsole or thelike to get a default error page.
