Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 6 Administrator's Configuration File Reference


If an error occurs during the request-handling process, for example, if a PathCheck or AuthTrans directive denies access to the requested resource or the requested resource does not exist, the SAF sets the HTTP response status code and returns the value REQ_ABORTED. When this happens, the server stops processing the request. Instead, it searches for an Error directive matching the HTTP response status code or its associated reason phrase and executes the directive’s function. If the server does not find a matching Error directive, it returns the response status code to the client.
