What is the scope of <%@ page errorPage="" %>? Does it get passed to jsp:forwarded pages? Does it get passed to jsp:included pages?

The errorPage="SomePage" attribute can be present in either the JSP that includes or forwards to another JSP OR in the included or forwarded JSP OR in both the parent/calling JSP and the JSPs included/forwarded. In all these cases the attribute will work .  The control will 'not be' redirected to the errorPage specified from these JSP pages, in case the exception is explicitly caught in them. To redirect the control to the errorPage either do not catch an exception in the JSP page OR throw an exception explicitly. I did some experimentation and found out that errorPage is passed on to forwarded and included pages. The forwaded or included page can always override the errorPage with own <%@ page errorPage="errorPage.jsp" %> directive.

And also note that This is not equivalent to try{} catch(Exception ex) {Response.sendRedirect("error.jsp"); } as response.sendRedirect("error.jsp") will redirect the response to other page - is like forward. While <%@ page errorPage = .... is like include.
