Regarding my 2nd problem, what server says is:
"2009-02-12 20:40:26,786 ERROR [org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[jboss.web].[localhost].[/richfaces-demo-3.1.6.GA-jee5]] Exception sending context initialized event to listener instance of class org.jboss.web.jsf.integration.config.JBossJSFConfigureListener
This problem was reproducing in some version of Opera browser. Do you use it?
Also I recommend to try 3.3.0.GA release.
thank you for the prompt reply.
I'm afraid this does not depend only on the browser - the symptoms are the same in Opera and Firefox.
In what way 3.3.0 is better than 3.3.2 ?
I'm sorry, it is late night here and I lost attention - so you think that 3.3.0 might solve my problem (now I'm trying to fire up 3.2.1) ?
Probably yes; in any case, it should be very easy to try it - just replace .jar files.
I suggest that you check what's being loaded so long using "Net" tab of Firebug or some tool like MS Fiddler.
Thank you for suggestion.
With 3.3.0 it worked smoothly indeed.
