Looks like you have both 3.2.0.GA and 3.3.0.GA in classpath. Can you please check?
I double checked and I don't see any references for previous versions of jboss.
/Users/bgummadi/asisp#>find . -name "*richfaces*" ./server/default/tmp/deploy/tmp39222zasis-exp.war/WEB-INF/lib/richfaces-api-3.3.0.GA.jar ./server/default/tmp/deploy/tmp39222zasis-exp.war/WEB-INF/lib/richfaces-impl-3.3.0.GA.jar ./server/default/tmp/deploy/tmp39222zasis-exp.war/WEB-INF/lib/richfaces-ui-3.3.0.GA.jar
I checked the jar file in maven dependencies and I don't see SAXStartElementEvent in org.ajax4jsf.context package. Three jar files that maven downloaded are richfaces-api-3.3.0.GA.jar, richfaces-ui-3.3.0.GA.jar and richfaces-impl-3.3.0.GA.jar
Thanks tho. Any other suggestions?
SAXStartElementEvent class has been removed in 3.3.0.GA. If you are using portlet bridge please try to update to the latest one.
Thank you. That fixed the problem.
