    reRender does not work with a4j:commandLink at the second ti

    Hao Di Newbie

      I am trying to implement the page navigation with ajax.
      I use <a4j:include viewId="#{pageNavigation.destPage}" /> to implement it.
      Here is the main page.

      <body>
      
       <f:view>
      
       <h:panelGrid width="100%" cellpadding="0" border="0" columns="1">
       <a4j:include viewId="test3.jsp" />
      
       <a4j:outputPanel id="contentArea" ajaxRendered="true">
       <a4j:include viewId="#{pageNavigation.destPage}" />
       </a4j:outputPanel>
      
      
       <a4j:include viewId="test2.jsp" />
      
       </h:panelGrid>
       </f:view>
       </body>


      In the test2.jsp and test3.jsp there is each a commandlink.



      <h:form>
      
       <a4j:commandLink value="regist" reRender="contentArea" >
       <a4j:actionparam name="to" value="test5.jsp" assignTo="#{pageNavigation.destPage}"></a4j:actionparam>
       </a4j:commandLink>
      
       </h:form>


      <h:form>
      
      <a4j:commandLink value="Password" reRender="contentArea" >
       <a4j:actionparam name="to" value="test4.jsp" assignTo="#{pageNavigation.destPage}"></a4j:actionparam>
       </a4j:commandLink>
       </h:form>


      Now it is very strange. If I click the "Password" firstly, the panel will be rendered correctly. But then I click the "regist", it does not work. The page remains unchanged.

      Anyone can tell me why? And what is the general solution to implement the page navigation with jsf and ajax4jsf? Thanks a lot!

          add phase-tracker to your libraries and show the generated log for the request which can't do needed page switch.

            Here is the result with PhaseTracker:

            And I found if I refresh the page manually , then it works.
            Why?
