Subject How do you create a ExceptionHandler and error.jsp page
Date Wed, 29 Jun 2005 13:22:33 GMT

I have written an ExceptionHandler below and error.jsp page below but
the error page is not displaying the error. Can anyone see why please?



import javax.servlet.ServletException;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;

import org.apache.struts.action.*;
import org.apache.struts.config.ExceptionConfig;

public final class ActionExceptionHandler extends ExceptionHandler {

  public ActionForward execute(Exception ex,
                                  ExceptionConfig config,
                                  ActionMapping mapping,
                                  ActionForm formInstance,
                                  HttpServletRequest request,
                                  HttpServletResponse response)
    throws ServletException {
    ActionForward forward = null;
    ActionMessage message = null;
    String property = null;

    /* Get the path for the forward either from the exception element
    * or from the input attribute.
    String path = null;
    if(config.getPath() != null) {
      path = config.getPath();
    else {
      path = mapping.getInput();

    // Construct the forward object
    forward = new ActionForward(path);

    message = new ActionMessage(config.getKey());
    property = message.getKey();

    // Store the ActionError into the proper scope

    // The storeException method is defined in the parent class

    storeException(request, property, message, forward,
    return forward;
