RichFaces 4.5.2.Final is available for download.


Among other things, we have fixed several issues with Push and also enabled Websockets in our Showcase.

Important notes


Jar renaming

Two of our jars have been renamed:

  • richfaces-components-a4j to richfaces-a4j
  • richfaces-components-rich to richfaces-rich

If you're using maven for your projects this doesn't affect you.


FileUpload issue in IE10/11

<rich:fileUpload> may not work for you with Mojarra 2.2.7+ and Internet Explorer. This is caused by an error in Mojarra code and an irregular behavior of Internet Explorer. The issue is not always present but breaks the component. The issue will be fixed in Mojarra 2.3.0-m02; if you're using the JBoss distribution of JSF the patch has been backported into 2.2.9-jboss-2. In the meantime, this JavaScript function can be used as a workaround - make sure to run it before you start uploading:

addNames = (function () {
    var added = false;

    return function() {
        if (!added) {
            $.each(document.forms, function() {
                $.each(this.elements, function() {
           = || "";
        added = true;



Unfortunately several of our components do not function well inside <ui:repeat> in Mojarra 2.2.6+ as the behavior of the component was changed. We recommend using <a4j:repeat> instead until this issue is resolved.
