Subject RE: customize HTTP Status 401 error page
Date Thu, 23 Apr 2009 15:44:45 GMT
Would you give some instructions on doing that?
I tried to put <error-page>/error.html</error-page> in application own web.xml
And tomcat conf/web.xml, they won't work. The HTTP Status 401 error page is still used.

Thanks,
Jill

No.

Yes. See the section of web.xml that has <error-page> entries.
