I don't quite understand what you are trying to do when you say you
want to 'access' your .jsp file from within
your servlet.

If you are trying to get the servlet to tell tomcat what file to send
to the user you can use


That will be the last thing the servlet does during that call - and
tomcat will use the compiled version of error.jsp to generate the
response to the user.

You can feed data from the servlet to the .JSP by using
request.setAttribute("xxx") in the servlet and then
<%=request.getAttribute("xxx")%> in the JSP

Alternatively you could make the last method  insert(,) to embed the
output of the .jsp among other output from the servlet..

If, on the other hand, you are trying (for some strange reason) to
read the actual error.jsp file itself into the servlet as a string or
whatever, you can use


to return the full path name to that file - but I can't think why you
would want to do this.
