    redirection problem

    Thorsten Kunz Novice

      hi there,

      I have a little issue with dynamic redirection from within my component.

      In my component I construct the following URL

      https://some.site.somewhere/index.php?param1=value1&param2=value2

      and try to redirect the client like this
      ...
      HttpServletResponse response = (HttpServletResponse)facesContext.getExternalContext().getResponse();
      try {
       response.sendRedirect(url);
      } catch(IOException e) {
       log.error(e.getMessage());
      }
      facesContext.responseComplete();
      ...

      Now everything seems to work but one little annoying thing. Seam seems to append "?conversationId=5" to the redirected URL and that wracks the application on the other side.
      https://some.site.somewhere/index.php?param1=value1&param2=value2?conversationId=5

      How can I prevent Seam from doing this or at least make it append its parameter with a "&" and not a "?"?

      TIA, Thorsten

          Heh, funnily enough I fixed the ? -> & problem earlier today and already committed it to CVS.

          Right now there is no way to get rid of the conversationId parameter except by removing the SeamRedirectFilter from web.xml.

            hm, what is that thing actually good for? ok well besides redirecting stuff. ;) Whats the impact if I'd turn it off? Is it just appending the conversationId to all kinds of URLs?

            btw: can't tell you guys how much I appreciate your extremly fast responses all the time! Big big thanks for that! :) Without knowing that Gavin & Co. read and reply faster to posts then I can type I wouldn't have decided to use Seam in a production system with lots of customers on it.
