    public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)

ok...

when i go to blah.jsp, the runtime exception is caught and i get the error page 
specified in the error-page directive.

when i go to host/context/servlet/EVILSERVLET, i get tomcat's error page:
=== begin copy paste ===
Apache Tomcat/4.0.2 - HTTP Status 500 - Internal Server Error
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
type Exception report
message Internal Server Error
description The server encountered an internal error (Internal Server Error) 
that prevented it from fulfilling this request.
exception 
java.lang.RuntimeException: this is a runtime exception
	at com.templar.it.fed.sd.pda.Evil.doGet(Evil.java:25)
(etc etc)
=== end copy paste ===

both of them do the same thing (throw RuntimeException).

i'm not sure why only the JSP directs to my error-page, and the servlet just 
gives me tomcat's stack trace.

possibilities: something to do with it being runtime ; something to do with it 
being thrown from a servlet.

either way, this has been driving me nuts for some time.

thanks

john
