    A4J.AJAX.onExpired Does Not Work

    davesquire Newbie

      I have an application that works great with RichFaces AJAX components, until the session expires on the server.  If the session is expired, then the AJAX calls were causing errors.


      So I found info in the help about handling session expiration on the client.  I added this to my web.xml:








      Then on my page where the AJAX is happening I added the following to a <script> tag in the <head> tag of the page:


                      A4J.AJAX.onExpired = function(loc,expiredMsg) {

                          window.location.href = "http://www.google.com";




      I was expecting the browser to redirect to Google when an AJAX control was activated after the session was timed out.  BUT, on IE 8 it takes me to my login page (I'm using form based autorization) and it displays two errors saying "Object expected."  If I try to log in, then IE displays this:


      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

        <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">


            <meta name="Ajax-Response" content="true" />

            <meta name="Ajax-Expired" content="View state could't be restored - reload page ?" />





      In a totally simple application I get the correct behavior (with no username or password required).


      I have no idea what could be going wrong.  Any help or ideas as to what I should be looking for or testing would be wonderful!


      Thank you so much!
