    Compatibility with Richfaces

    geschtli Newbie

      Hi

       

      In the moment i use

       

      Jboss 6.0 with the newest JBoss-tools.

      (JSF 2.0, JPA 2.0 and CDI).

      With richfaces 3.3.3

      Using

      <ui:composition xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"

          xmlns:ui="http://java.sun.com/jsf/facelets"

          xmlns:f="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core"

          xmlns:h="http://java.sun.com/jsf/html">

       

      with an formular with <h:commandButton value="..." action="#{myclass.login}" />

      , all runs correct.

      (e.g. using dynamic actions from beans)

       

      Using other libs, how Apache-Tomahawk or richfaces 4.0

      in the same environment, they are not working correct.

      It seems that they have another calling conventions to Beans.

      I thing, there is a very big issue in that.

      Before that is not cleared, a change to 'Tomahawk or

      Richfaces 4.0' is definitly in the moment, waste of time.

          If you will look to demos and check the simple component like buttons usage - you will not find any difference in actions usage between 3 and 4 under JSF2. So you should probably try to discover sources of problem more(at least provide more info if want to get any help with your cases). I believe most of the problem for you lying in just configuration area.

           

          P.S. http://community.jboss.org/polls/1053 - looks not bad?

            Hi Ilya

             

            I use very simple calls in my application.

            A simple bean :

             

            @Named

            @SessionScoped

            public class LoginBean

            {

              .........

              public String getLogin()

               {

                // values from DB

                if (.....)

                 return  ok;

                return not_ok;

             

               }

            ........

             

            And in my facelets

            // address .....  h for html use

            // address ..... rich for rich use (from richfaces 4)

            // address ..... a4j for ajax use (from richfaces 4)

             

            Example call in my login.xhtml:

             

            <h:outputLabel .............

            <h:inputText ...........

            <h:commandButton action="#{loginBean.login}" value="Go" />

             

            all runs ok, and i got the correct value from my bean

             

            Now, changing to richfaces 4 with there libraries and if i call then

            <a4j:commandButton action="#{loginBean.login}" value="Go" />

             

            i got a MethodNotFoundException.

            (My bean and the environment i have not changed).

            In my faces-config.xml i have only my navigating rules

             

             

            My environment is:

             

            sun-jdk (j2ee) 1.6.24 (64 Bit)

            JBoss 6 (64 Bit)

            Eclipse Helios (64 bit) and Jboss-Tools

            Firefox (64 Bit) (Minefield) for testing

            JSF 2.0, JPA 2.0 and CDI (Weld 1.1.10)

             

            I thing there must be another calling convention,

            to call beans, or there is an error if i take richfaces 4

            in the jboss environment??....???

                  Hi Ilya

                   

                  Now i have changed my funktion name from login() to getLogin().

                   

                  Also i have putted in faces-config.xml

                  following text:

                   

                  <managed-bean>

                    <managed-bean-name>loginBean</managed-bean-name>

                    <managed-bean-class>com.mytest.session.LoginBean</managed-bean-class>

                    <managed-bean-scope>session</managed-bean-scope>

                    <managed-property>

                     <property-name>login</property-name>

                     <value>fail</value>

                    </managed-property>

                  </managed-bean>

                   

                  (With CDI, i use cdi-annotations, so i must normaly not set

                  managed beans in the faces-config.xml)

                   

                  But now, my example starts without an exception.

                  But the button cannot be seen.There is no button.Strange!!!

                  Does i overseen something??

                   

                  My Page is :

                   

                   

                  <ui:composition xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"

                      xmlns:ui="http://java.sun.com/jsf/facelets"

                      xmlns:f="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core"

                      xmlns:h="http://java.sun.com/jsf/html"

                      xmlns:rich="http://richfaces.org/rich"

                      xmlns:a4j="http://richfaces.org/a4j">

                   

                   

                        <h:form>    

                   

                   

                                 <h:outputText value="#{msg.name}" />

                                 <h:inputText value="#{loginBean.alias}" required="true" />

                                 <h:outputText value="#{msg.pwd}" />

                                 <h:inputSecret  value="#{loginBean.password}"  required="true" />

                   

                              <a4j:commandButton value="GO" action="#{loginBean.login}" />

                            </h:form>

                  </ui:composition>

                   

                   

                  At last, i see this,

                  .... <a4j:commandButton value="GO" action="loginFail"></a4j:commandButton>...

                  the original richfaces/ajax-command in the Client-Browser.

                  It ist not correct interpreted/rendererd on the server.

                  Perhaps there is a chance, that richfaces code cannot be correct interpreted

                  with jboss 6 or an 64 Bit environment???
