    Is RichFaces 3.1.6 a working release?

    E Aish Novice

      Hi,

      I am currently using Rich Faces 3.1.3 . I am trying to upgrade to 3.1.6 and it is not successful yet. I have been trying to find out ways to get the 3.1.6 version to work. I have posted few messages related to it. I am not sure if the 3.1.6 version has an issue or I am missing something.

      Please let me know if you need additional information from my end to see what I am missing. If you could help me with this, It would be very helpful. By the way, my environment is

      IBM RAD 7 for development
      Oracle
      Weblogic 9.2
      Richfaces 3.1.3

      Thanks
      Aish

            Thanks for responding.

            I have a small web application which works as expected under RichFaces 3.1.3. There are also couple of small issues (like Scrollabledatatable header missing at times, etc) and I was suggested to upgrade to 3.1.6 RichFaces as 3.1.6 has fixes for many bugs.

            I tried to upgrade to 3.1.6 but the application is not working at all under 3.1.6. Please let me know what you need from me to help me resolve this problem. I have posted few messages and responded to their questions but still I could not get this problem resolved. I am still struggling to upgrade to 3.1.6

            I truly appreciate your help in resolving this

            Thanks

              If your web app is just like a small example app, then you can zip it and send it to me. But ... why don't you talk about a specific situation which works in 3.1.3 but not in 3.1.6?

                Hi,

                Thanks a lot for your quick response on this.

                Let me explain what I tried. I have a home page with few menu items on it. Each of these menu item, when selected, display web pages with data selected from the database from various tables. The web pages were coded with RichFaces tags. Everything (web pages) are displayed well with RichFaces 3.1.3.

                Now, to upgrade to RichFaces 3.1.6, I removed the 3 RichFaces 3.1.3 jar files from the web-inf\lib folder and copied the three 3.1.6 jar files. When I run the application, the home page is displayed with the menu items on it. When I select the menu item, the web pages are not displayed. Basically, nothing happens when I select the menu item. I do not see any error messages nor any data displayed on the web page. Also, the .jsp programs display error signs stating that "they could not recognize the RichFaces tags". The Rich Faces tags are marked as errors. (I am using RAB 7 as my IDE )

                Now, when I replace with 3.1.3 jar files, the error in the .jsp pages were removed( no longer displays the unrecognized tag error message) and the web pages are displayed when the menu item is selected.

                This kind of thing indicates to me that web application is working with 3.1.3 jar files but not with 3.1.6 jar files. I could send the war file but it is 16MB and it access the database objects which may require the database setup. Please let me know if I should still send it. Also, please let me know if you need any other information from my end.

                Thanks so much

                Regards
                Aish

                  Could you write a new web app where your web pages don't get data from the db and test it again? If it doesn't work this time, then you can send me the war file.

                    Hi,

                    Sure. I will write a small web app and get back to you. Could you please check my post and let me your suggestions. Is there an email id that I can write to you in case you got busy and could not reply to me?

                    Thanks

                      Hi,

                      I tried a small web app and that worked with 3.1.3 and not with 3.1.6. I have the war file. Please let me know how I should send it to you. I do not see any option to add an attachment here.

                      Thanks

                        Hi,

                        I sent the two war files (one built with RichFaces 3.1.3 jar and the second with RichFaces 3.1.6 jar files) from a gmail account. Due to attachment size limitation, I had to send them as two email.

                        Please take a look at it and let me know your suggestions
                        Thanks

                              I tried sending them again now and it looks like it went thru to your mail box. It has been couple of mins and I didn't get any error report. Please see if you have received and let me know your suggestions.

                                Hi,

                                I think the problem in upgrading to 3.1.6 from 3.1.3 is because of this? I am using IBM RAD as my IDE to develop the web application. Is there a procedure involved in upgrading while we use these type of IDEs? Because I happened to come across the following link :

                                http://www.jboss.org/community/docs/DOC-11864

                                At the end of this page, there is a section named "How to work with samples Applications in Eclipse" that dictates some procedure to upgrade in order to make the application recognize the new libraries. Since RAD is built on top of eclipse, is there any procedure similar to this available in order for the upgrade to be successful? Please let me know..

                                Also, my looking at the link, I tried the procedure given for eclipse in RAD to certain extent (because some of the options are not directly available in RAD) and it does not seem to be working fine.. I couldhave missed something.. Could you please let me know if there is any upgrade instructions available for IBM RAD?

                                Thanks
                                Aish

                                  Does the application work if you deploy it manually without RAD? Are you able to run this file: http://download.jboss.com/jboss-richfaces/richfaces-demo-3.1.6.GA.war?
