Subject Re: Tomcat overwrites error response body
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2005 11:28:20 GMT
Don't use sendError() - use setStatus(). Also - se the status first as to 
ensure the response is not committed before you send th body of the page. 
Also - once the page is done - try and close the resonse to ensure any error 
handling by tomcat is not done.
