problem with exception handling

John McClain Newbie

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

 <redirect view-id="/genericErrorPage.xhtml">



Here is genericErrorPage.xhtml
 id="globalMessages" />

Here is where the exception is thrown in the backing bean:
 public List<Tblcase> getCaseList() throws Exception {
 if (true)
 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?
