provide please environment info JSF, JDK, web container versions?..
I am using the following environment:
JSF Porlet (JSR 168 API), Websphere Portal Server 6.0, RSA 7.0 (IDE)
I'm pushing for JSF at my company and in particular, trying to get approval to using RichFaces. Problem is, it'll only be allowed once I get a demo to work in-house, and I keep getting this same error. Websphere (we have 6.0.1) insists on parsing the face-config.xml files within the RichFaces jars, and fails. AFAIK our version of WAS is still on JSF 1.0.
Even taking the richfaces-demo-3.1.4.GA.war as is, WAS still tries to parse those faces-config files and fails, resulting in no workie. I've seen other classloader issues like mine, and it may have something to do with being behind a firewall (?) or sadly, it may be that WAS can't run RichFaces.
Any light that can be spared to be shed on this issue would make many of us shackled to WAS very happy.
