i have the same problem, have you found a solution?
I got it trying to use a custom class that override portlet life cycle methods (doView, processAction) doing something before to call the parent methods... nothing special
jboss portal 2.6.4 (boundled with jb as)
portletbridge 1.0.0 B2
thanks to anyone suggests a solution
i think i found the problem: i'm using jsf 1.2 architecture with jsp and i think it is not possible into portal 2.6.4/2.6.5 because of the application server (on tomcat jsf 1.2 and jsp are enabled only on 6 version).
I tryed a simple test with facelet instead of jsp and it works, so maybe using facelets is the only way to work with jsf ri 1.2, richfaces 3.2 and portal 2.6.4/2.6.5 ...
Hope this info will be useful for others
Yes you are correct, this is a feature only for Servlet 2.5 as required by JSF 1.2.
if you do meet the above criteria and want to use jsp, you must coment out the Facelet View Handler in web.xml. And change extension type to *.jsp.
Generally if you get a ClassCastException regarding JBP core classes then it means (most of the time) that you have included the JBP jars, which are the dependencies in your MyEclipse, in to the WAR.
Hope this helps.
