    Problem with 3.2.2.GA and simple echo

    Owen Thomas Newbie

      Hello. All I have in my app at the moment is the simple echo example from the documentation. I'm using MyFaces 1.2.4, no Tomahawk. I can't even get to the first page of the app which doesn't have any ajax or richfaces at all and instead it gives me this error -

      HTTP Status 500 -

      type Exception report

      message

      description The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

      exception

      When I go back to RichFaces 3.2.1.GA it works. I've googled quite a lot to no avail.

      Thanks in advance for any help.

              Sorry I'm now using JSF Mojarra as I wanted to not have STATE_SAVING_METHOD as client.

              Anyway I made a little test app without spring and a lot of other stuff and I get the same problem:

                  Hi, I've just updated my richfaces version from 3.2.2.GA to 3.2.2.SR1, and I'm getting the same error.

                  I'm using seam 2.1.1.CR2 and richfaces 3.2.2.SR1.

                      1) http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=128558
                      2) remove ajax4jsf filter its nor needed using seam.
                      3) in general do not define any filters before the seam or ajax4jsf one in web.xml.

                        I have the same problem with weblogic 10.3. Is the first time I use WL. With jBoss is fine. But now it is not working.

                        I have the same stack log error.
