    Problem restoring view after timeout

    Jason Long Master

      I have upgraded to JSF 1.2 in anticipation of Seam 2.0, but I am having a problem with restoring the view after timeout. This occurs when using a4j:commandLink.

      I get the exception below and a yes/no popup appears with the text

      View state couldn't be restored - reload page ?


      By adding the following to page.xml, I can catch the error, but the popup still appears.

      <exception class="java.lang.IllegalArgumentException">
       <redirect view-id="/error.xhtml">
       <message severity="warn">Problem restoring view. Please try again.</message>
       </redirect>
       </exception>


      How can I catch this error and redirect without having the popup appear?

      I am using JBoss 4.2.1, Seam 1.2.1, and JSF 1.2 that comes with JBoss 4.2.1.
