The documentation notes that rich:dataTable differs from h:dataTable in its Ajax support. I currently use richFaces to update my h:dataTables by using a reRender from a4j:poll on h:dataTable. This does update the table.
So I'm curious what additional Ajax support rich:dataTable offers.
In addition I'm wondering if rich:dataTable supports Ajax updates of individual rows/cells/columns.
I have a h:dataTable that displays dyanmic system status, so the content changes frequently. Additionally, the user can select a row using a checkbox on the row. This combination has been problematic as the table update timing may interfer with the user checking boxes. I'm wondering if rich:dataTable could make this easier.
you can do Sorting for Example with rich:dataTable (using rich:columns). You can use Checkboxes with a4j:support to make each Click an update to your Beans via AJAX.
