Goal

When an application is accessed through SSL with two-way SSL and has an expired certificate, WLS Certpath validator will reject the user from accessing the application. However a 403 FORBIDDEN error is thrown in the client browser. How is it possible to redirect the error message which is got in the user browser to a customized error page in the application so as not to show the user regarding the 403 Forbidden error?
