It appears the jsr315 spec group may have wanted to make a new feature of having error-pages without defining a code or exception name. Unfortunately there is no text about this in the 3.0 final specification. See section 10.9.2 Error Pages. This is not mentioned.

Nor is there any comment in the web-common.xsd schema.

The only information on this feature can be found on a blog from someone from oracle:

If this is indeed a new feature that was added in servlet 3.0, this must be documented in the specification.

We need to update the following:

  • web-common schema
  • section 14.4 No. 15, p.157 in Spec
  • section 10.9.2, p.108 in Spec
Comment by Shing Wai Chan [ 09/Jan/13 ]

The spec is updated as follows:
Sending applications.fm
Sending deployment.fm
Sending status.fm
Transmitting file data ...
Committed revision 64.

Concerning the schema, I have confirmed that it has been updated correctly in Servlet 3.0. We only need to add additional comments there.
