    BlockDataOutputStream.getUTFLength error after updating to 3

    Flavio Henrique Newbie

      Hi all!
      I don't know for sure why this happens, but I know that only happens using 3.3.0GA. When I switch back to 3.2.2GA everything works as expected.

      I prefer to post here and someone else (that really knows if it's a bug) fill an issue...

      I have a little web application and after saving a record, some navigation rule should be applied, but this exception comes out:

      using: Facelets, Jsf 1.2, rich 3.3.0GA, tomcat 6, java 6

          Hello,

          Thank you for submitting the issue! I've added this as: https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/RF-5830

          • 2. Re: BlockDataOutputStream.getUTFLength error after updating
            Felipe Jaekel Newbie

            Is there any workaround? I need to use the editor component.

              if workaround appears it will appear in the issue.

                I'm getting the exact same error - even with a 3.3.1 snapshot ( richfaces-impl-3.3.1-20090317.043052-42.jar ).

                All is fine until I add the message="..." attribute to the

                <t:validateRegExpr id="netmaskValidationMsg" pattern="\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}" message="Please input a valid netmask."/> tag No errors without the message="...". I get the following stack trace when it is added.

                Is this a different varient of the same problem or has the fix to RF-5830 not yet been included in the snapshot?

                TIA!

                  What exact version of richfaces-ui.jar do you use?

                    Hi!
                    I'm having the same problem, whereas 3.3.0.GA fails 3.2.2.GA and 3.3.1-SNAPSHOT don't thorws this exception. I think the 3.3.1-SNAPSHOT rich:dataTable is due to css not really useful yet, im using 3.2.2.GA again.

                    thx

                      Can you please clarify what's wrong with CSS?

                        nbelaevski,

                        I'm using richfaces-impl-3.3.1-20090317.043052-42.jar with the 3.3.0.GA version of richfaces-ui.jar ... Is there a place that has a 3.3.1 snapshot of the richfaces-ui.jar??

                        TIA!

                          I have now built and tested with richfaces-api-3.3.1-20090318.084312-43.jar, richfaces-impl-3.3.1-20090318.084312-43.jar and richfaces-ui-3.3.1-20090318.084312-43.jar.

                          This now appears to work in some situations and still fails in others.

                          The mesage="..." in the following snippet now works as desired.

                           <s:decorate id="subnetDecoration" template="/templates/editField.xhtml">
                           <ui:define name="label"><h:outputText id="subnetHeader" value="#{msgs.subnetHeader}"/></ui:define>
                           <h:inputText id="subnet" value="#{discoveryListController.selectedItem.subnet}" required="true">
                           <a4j:support id="subnetOnblur" event="onblur" reRender="subnetDecoration"/>
                           <t:validateRegExpr id="subnetValidationMsg" pattern="\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}" message="Please enter a valid subnet."/>
                           </h:inputText>
                           </s:decorate>
                          


                          However, adding messages to a FacesMesage in a Seam component still fails in the same way.....

                          Here are relevant snippets from the Seam Component

                          
                          import javax.ejb.Stateful;
                          import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Name;
                          import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Scope;
                          import org.jboss.seam.faces.FacesMessages;
                          
                          @Stateful
                          @Scope( ScopeType.CONVERSATION )
                          @Name( "discoveryListController" )
                          public class DiscoveryListControllerBean
                          {
                           @In(create = true, value="facesMessages")
                           protected FacesMessages facesMessages;
                          
                           public void doIt()
                           {
                          
                           System.out.println( "facesMessage: " + facesMessage );
                           facesMessages.add( "Test message." );
                           }
                          }
                          
                          


                          I attach the doIt() method to a button with action="#{discoveryListController.doIt}". I see that the facesMessage in not null by the System.out.println. Yet the following stack trace results:

                          Is there anything else that would be useful to finding the cause of this? Is this scenario supposed to be fixed?

                          TIA!

                            It seems that you have both 3.3.0.GA and 3.3.1-snapshot in the classpath. Can you please check?

                              You are correct. Upon further search I did find some unexpected 3.3.0 jars in the classpath. Thank you so much for your help. Both scenarios now appear to work as desired!
