Description vitorsouza 2010-06-10 14:25:05 UTC
In the web.xml editor, "Pages" tab, "Error Pages" section, if I add an error page I have to fill in a field named "Error Page Location". 

This field has a "Browse..." button that allows me to pick a page from my project. But it doesn't allow me to edit the field myself. I'd like to do that so I can change the extension .xhtml to .faces and have the error page pass through the FacesServlet.

The only way to accomplish this is to go to the "XML" tab and edit the <location> element under <error-page>. It would be better if the graphical editor allowed me to do it.

In the "Security" tab, "Login Configuration" section, if I choose the option "Form", the field "Form Login Page" that shows up has a "Browse..." button but allows me to edit the field. You could make the "Error Page Location" field like this one.
