Version 25

    Too many JSF components only target the Servlet environment and break in a Portlet environment.


    One reason for this is an unnecessary classcast to HttpServletRequest somewhere in the code (they should be using the ExternalContext instead).  Another common reason is that the component relies on a Servlet filter, which is not an available feature of JSR-168 Portlets.


    Here we will try to evaluate JSF components in a portlet environment
