How can I invoke a JSP error page from a servlet?

Yes, You can invoke JSP error page from a servlet by passing the exception object as a javax.servlet.jsp.jspException request attribute.

Example : 

protected void sendErrorRedirect(HttpServletRequest request, 

HttpServletResponse response, String errorPageURL, Throwable e) throws

ServletException, IOException {

request.setAttribute (\"javax.servlet.jsp.jspException\", e);


getRequestDispatcher(errorPageURL).forward(request, response);


public void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)


try {

// Code that might cause exception

} catch (Exception ex) {

try {


} catch (Exception e) {
