    Ajax Echo-Tutorial doesn't work!!!

    Markus - Newbie


      i have testet the Ajax Echo-Tutorial from richfaces. It works but with the following simple enhancments it doesn't work:

      <webuijsf:form binding="#{Page1.form1}" id="form1">
       <h:selectOneRadio id="fruit" value="#{fruitInfoBean.fruit}"
       <f:selectItems value="#{fruitInfoBean.fruits}"/>
       <a4j:support event="onchange" ignoreDupResponses="true" reRender="varietyInfo,variety"/>
       <h:selectOneMenu id="variety" value="#{fruitInfoBean.variety}">
       <f:selectItems value="#{fruitInfoBean.varieties}"/>
       <h:outputText id="varietyInfo" value="#{fruitInfoBean.varietyInfo}" />
       <rich:panel id="panel13" header="Simple Echo">
       <h:inputText id="input12" size="50" value="#{echoBean.text}" >
       <a4j:support event="onkeyup" reRender="rep"/>
       <h:outputText value="#{echoBean.text}" id="rep"/>

      public class EchoBean
       private String text = null;
       public EchoBean() {}
       public String getText()
       return text;
       public void setText(String text)
       this.text = text;

      public class FruitInfoBean
       private SelectItem[] fruits = { new SelectItem("Pear", "Pear"), new SelectItem("Apple", "Apple"),
       new SelectItem("Orange", "Orange"), new SelectItem("Peach", "Peach") };
       private SelectItem[] varietiesPear = { new SelectItem("Pear1", "Pear1") };
       private SelectItem[] varietiesApple = { new SelectItem("Apple1", "Apple1"), new SelectItem("Apple2", "Apple2") };
       private SelectItem[] varietiesOrange = { new SelectItem("Orange1", "Orange1"), new SelectItem("Orange2", "Orange2") };
       private SelectItem[] varietiesPeach = { new SelectItem("Peach1", "Peach1"), new SelectItem("Peach2", "Peach2"), new SelectItem("Peach3", "Peach3") };
       private SelectItem[] varieties = null;
       private String fruit = fruits[1].getLabel();
       private String variety = "no one";
       private String varietyInfo = "no one";
       public FruitInfoBean() {}
       public String getFruit()
       return fruit;
       public SelectItem[] getFruits()
       return fruits;
       public void changeFruit(ValueChangeEvent event)
       String str = (String)event.getNewValue();
       variety = str;
       varietyInfo = str + " is now selected and active!!!";
       if (str.startsWith("Pear"))
       varieties = varietiesPear;
       else if (str.startsWith("Apple"))
       varieties = varietiesApple;
       else if (str.startsWith("Orange"))
       varieties = varietiesOrange;
       varieties = varietiesPeach;
       public String getVariety()
       return variety;
       public SelectItem[] getVarieties()
       if (varieties == null)
       varieties = new SelectItem[] { new SelectItem("Peach", "Peach") };
       return varieties;
       return varieties;
       public String getVarietyInfo()
       return varietyInfo;

      What I have added is a radio-selection of fruits and a combobox of fruit types. If a fruit is selected (e.g. Orange) the combobox is updated with new values. The interesting effect now is:

      If i type at the echo server and then select e.g. Orange the "changeFruit" event is called and after this i type again at the echo server no "setText" event occurs on the server. The echo-server doesn't work.

      It looks like that the "state information" gets lost. Thanks in advance.
