I got the error handling page at the time. In other words, a user see the error page and can't
use the application any further when it happens. So, I need do something about it. The 404
error handling page is invoked through the configuration in the web.xml:

How can I change the way the notfound.jsp is invoked so that the type of 404 error is ignored?

I can clear my browser's cache, but I can't ask all users to do the same. The too sensitive
error report drives people away as far as I can tell.

I also enable the access log at the production box and I will observe the log file for any
other causes.

Thank very much for your helps.
