    How to redirect Customized Jsp when encounter the 403 Error

    Naresh Garlapati Newbie

      Hi All,






      Iam trying to Redirect to Customized Jsp. for the 403 error but it will not redirecting to the customized page.

      Pls look-in in to my comments on Web.xml.

      I tried to handle error code(HTTP ERROR CODE ; 401, 403, 404, 500) through web.xml in my application. But the server does not recognize the changes and showing the same browser messages.

      (We have authourized some jsps/URLs based on jaas form based authenticaiton of jboss. So when I click on the application, it prompts for userid/password and opens the page accordigly if that user is Autoized user.when the user is Unauthorized it is diplaying form-errorpage but the problem is if there are two uses one user is having permission to two differnet jsps,then if the user is trying to access the page for which he has no access permission it is displaying "You are not authorized to view this page".)

      Instead we want to display our cusotm error message.

      Environment: Appserver : Jboss3.2.5
      OS : Windows

      this is my web.xml


      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

      </security-constraint>

      <login-config>

      <auth-method>FORM</auth-method>
      <form-login-config>
      <form-login-page>/Errorpages/login.jsp</form-login-page>
      <form-error-page>/Errorpages/login_error.html</form-error-page>
      </form-login-config>
      </login-config>



      <security-role>
      <role-name>testRole</role-name>
      </security-role>

      <security-role>
      <role-name>admin</role-name>
      </security-role>

      </web-app>

      as the above web.xml says there are two different users with two different roles(test Role and admin) each one is having access to differnt jsps when the user in admin trying to access that page which is having access permission to testRole then this 403 error happening,i want to catch that and display my customized eror page.

      I have edited the web.xml as follows, but it did not redirect to errorPage.jsp(custom error page)



      <!-- Standard Action Servlet Configuration (with debugging) -->

      <error-page>
      <error-code>403</error-code>
      /ErrorPage.jsp
      </error-page>

      .... ....
      .... ....
      .... ....
      </web-app>






      I hope you understand my problem, eagerly waiting for your reply.



      Thanks in Advance,
