I'm getting more and more problems with icefaces and seam. The reason is that FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getExternalContext().getResponse() gives you a null (damn AJAX :D) instead of a valid response object. In the consequence many seam features do not work at all (cookies, redirect etc.).
Am I doing anything wrong? Or is this a known (icefaces or seam) issue? Is there any workaround? This is very annoying and I'm thinking of throwing icefaces away and going back to the simple roots.
