    Trouble porting an RI implementation into portal

    mark welch Newbie

      Hello,
      I'm using the 2.2.1sp2 bundled version of jboss portal (downloaded). I'm using the built in hibernate virtual database and running JBoss on my PC (Windows XP). I am trying to integrate a JSF RI implementation into the portal. The JSF application currently runs in the 4.0.2 AS version of JBOSS. While integrating I am experiencing what appears to be conflicts between the RI and my faces. I don't know if it's a classpath issue, my war file, or an actual conflict. The portal seems to be trying to cast to a JBossRenderResponse and the RI code is using an HTTPServletResponse. Any advice would be helpful. I was hoping the RI application would work with very little change.
      Thanks,
      Mark
