Subject Re: error page for error code 500?
Date Tue, 04 Feb 2003 16:10:30 GMT
If you are trying to generate a 500 by accessing a url outside a context 
then the error page defined within the context won't get triggered. 
Where are you putting your error-page tags? You could try altering the 
web.xml in tomcats conf directory...
