Troubleshooting Duke's Bookstore Database Problems

The Duke’s Bookstore database access object returns the following exceptions:

Because you have specified an error page, you will see the message

The application is unavailable. Please try later.

If you don’t specify an error page, the web container generates a default page containing the message

A Servlet Exception Has Occurred

and a stack trace that can help you diagnose the cause of the exception. If you use errorpage.html, you will have to look in the server log to determine the cause of the exception.
