Subject Re: displaying customized error page in tomcat 5.5.12
Date Thu, 17 May 2007 16:08:28 GMT
Hi Tim,
Thanks for that explanation.
We are not using any web server, so, I cannot configure in httpd file.

I resolved the problem using the same <error-page> tag. I have placed my
custom error page in webapps/ROOT directory.

Thanks for your support.
