    Richfaces 4 M2 problems

    jattra Newbie

      Hello, I have tried to get Richfaces 4 M2 running (using maven2) and I have these problems:

      On server startup an exception appears: ClassNotFoundException: org.ajax4jsf.Filter

       

      In richfaces 3 this class was included. In case of richfaces 4, I have to add ajax4jsf dependency.

       

      With ajax4jsf.jar it starts but on page load another exception appears:

      Error parsing [jar:file:richfaces-components-ui-4.0.0.20100826-M2.jar!/META-INF/rich.taglib.xml]

      ...

      Caused by: org.xml.sax.SAXException: Error Handling  [jar:file:richfaces-components-ui-4.0.0.20100826-M2.jar!/META-INF/rich.taglib.xml@2,256]

      ...

      Caused by: org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Document root element "facelet-taglib", must match DOCTYPE root "null".

       

      Can anybody help, please?

          You must remove any declarations of org.ajax4jsf.Filter from your web.xml, and delete ajax4jasf.jar from classpath, only richfaces.*.jar's needed

            I had the Filter in web.xml. I removed it and it works. So, there is no configuration for richfaces needed, is it?

              Yes, You are right.

                I have moved to Richfaces M5 and integrated with JSF 2.0.3 and Spring Webflow 2.2.1. It works quite well but this exception appeares in log: java.io.FileNotFoundException: /WEB-INF/rfRes/skinning.xhtml Not Found in ExternalContext as a Resource

                 

                I suspect that it needs skinning.ecss (from richfaces lib) but I don't know why it looks for skinning.xhtml. I can post any config files if that could help to solve this. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

                      Hi jattra,

                       

                      Even I am too using the same configuration of " Richfaces 4 M5 and integrated with JSF 2.0.3 and Spring Webflow 2.2.1".

                       

                      Having the same config in  the web.xml, But i am not getting any error as u have mentioned.

                       

                      But for me the richfaces "styling" is not getting applied.

                      Can u post a sample xhml file where the richfaces component is used and its getting rendered in the UI with "styling" too.

                       

                      Thanks in advance.

                        Hi Gangadhar, I don't have richfaces styles applied (because of that error I suppose). And with XHTML it is quite complicated...

                        But as I said before, I don't get it styled in richfaces manner and I get the error I have described in earlier post.

                            I'm having a similar problem with Rich Faces 4.  The first time the page loads, the Rich Faces skins/stylesheets are included in the page, and the page displays properly.  However, when I submit a form with a validation error, the page is reloaded without the skins/stylesheets.

                             

                            It's like the response chain is quitting after the validation phase and not continuing on to the Rich Faces part that included the stylesheets in the pages.

                             

                            Any ideas?

                              problem solved, its a workaround solution

                                  Hi,

                                   

                                  I've been having problems as I've tried switching from Richfaces 3 to Richfaces 4, with it not loading the stylesheets.  I came across this answer as I searched for the error I was seeing (FileNotFoundException for /rfRes/... items), and that moved me forward a bit, but now I'm getting a different error.  I put in the jsfResourceHandlerHack items into my config, and now when I try to load a simple page with a rich:panel on it (which I'm using to test my config), instead of complaining that it can't find the /rfRes/... items, I get this error:

                                  Has anyone seen this?  Any idea why it doesn't like the JsfResourceRequestHandler?

                                    Replying to myself here after having done a little more research on this.  It seems that the Controller interface clashes with the HttpRequestHandler interface that JsfResourceRequestHandler implements.  Was this a rename or a migration of some kind that occurred at some point?  Is it possible I have incompatible versions of RichFaces and SpringMVC or WebFlow, or somethin' like that?  I'd love some help if anyone has any ideas, since this is preventing me from moving forward with testing for this migration.
