And once again this problem rears its ugly head! I was buzzing along with my application development (Spring 3.0, Hibernate 3.3, and RichFaces 3.3) and then it was time to add the rich:datascroller to my rich:dataTable. When the search results page came up I was very pleased and then I hit the next arrow!
That's when I get the exception. I have the OpenSessionInView filter set up in my web.xml. I've had it there since I was developing this app with IceFaces. I am glad I made the switch to RichFaces, but the forums on the net don't seem to have a solution for this.
