      Hello! I have an old Struts 1.3.8 application and i want to integrate Richfaces into existing application. I want to use drag and drop components from Richfaces in my Struts application. It is posible do to this? If yes, please tell me how can I integrate Struts 1 and Richfaces in a same web application. Thanks!

          Hi Nicolae,

           

          In broader scope you are integrating with JSF and only then RichFaces; as the latter is an extension over JSF... try looking at http://shale.apache.org/ - there are some examples of such integration. Note that Shale project has been retired in 2009th, so integration can be tough, as JSF evolved much since that.

            Thanks for the answer. I have tried to integrate with JSF but unsuccessfully. When i try to call a Struts action it gives me following error:

            The code from registration.jsp is:

             

            <!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">
            <%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core" prefix="f"%>
            <%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsf/html" prefix="h"%>
            <!-- RichFaces tag library declaration -->
            
            <html>
                <head>
                <title>RichFaces Greeter</title>
                </head>
            
                <body>
                    <f:view>
                        Test
                    </f:view>
                </body>
            </html>
            

             

            If i remove <f:view> tag and put simple html code it works fine. It seems that not recognize jsf libraries. 

             

            I have attach the project. All you need to do is to extract rar archive and import project into Eclipse.I don't know what i do wrong! Please help me!

            I really need to integrate Struts with Jsf and then add Richfaces libraries.Thanks!

              JSF tags require FacesServlet to be in chain - looks like it's not so in your case.

                        <!-- Edit user registration -->
                        <action path="/editRegistration"
                            type="org.apache.struts.webapp.example2.EditRegistrationAction"
                            attribute="registrationForm" scope="request" validate="false">
                            <forward name="register" path="/registration.jsf" />
                        </action>
