Preventing Web Dispatcher from Disclosing Host Name Information

When a call to web disptcher is made and the call fails at the application server, the web dispatcher returns information such as the name of the application server, components at which the failure occurred etc.

This information may be deemed as sensitive in some cases  and in case you do not wish web dispatcher to propagate this information set/change the parameter is/HTTP/show_detailed_errors to FALSE

With the parameter set to FALSE, the Web Dispatcher issues an error ID instead of the above mentioned information. For error troubleshooting purposes, systems admins can use this error ID  to look up on web dispatcher trace file (dev_webdisp)
