    problem with exception handling

    John McClain Newbie

      I put the following in pages.xml to test exception handling:

      .
      .<exception>
       <end-conversation/>
       <redirect view-id="/genericErrorPage.xhtml">
      
       </redirect>
       </exception>
      
      </pages>
      


      Here is genericErrorPage.xhtml
      body>
      <h:messages
       styleClass="message"
       id="globalMessages" />
      </body>
      


      Here is where the exception is thrown in the backing bean:
      .
      .
      @Factory("caseList")
       public List<Tblcase> getCaseList() throws Exception {
       if (true)
       {
       facesMessages.add("TeSTMESSAGE1");
       throw new Exception("test");
       }
      

      facesMessages was @In injected into this statefull session bean
      The genericErroPage.xhtml does not come up, instead I get this
      SEVERE: Error Rendering View[/caselist.xhtml]
      java.lang.RuntimeException: exception invoking: getCaseList
       at or
      .
      .
      
      
      

      Why no erro page?
