Hi, Donald-

You might also want to consider using the isErrorPage=”true|false” and 
possibly the errorPage=”error_url” attributes of the JSP page directive 
for error handling. However, I would still agree with Chris's 
recommendation that all processing that might generate an error be 
completed before any output is generated.
