The command '<a4j:command' from Richfaces, so i have tested,
has many bottlenecks and bug's.
The command itself does not, for what it was foreseen.
I think, it needs a good workarround.
- First, holding an accurate Link over some rendering pages does not correct work.
- Second, calling methods to send datas (eg. table-datas converted to csv-files)
doesn't also not work.
This all does work with '<h:commandLink', but not with '<a4j:commandLink'
Where 'h' and 'a4j' is:
xmlns:h="http://java.sun.com/jsf/html" (from Apache MyFaces jsf 2.0)
xmlns:a4j="http://richfaces.org/a4j" (from Richfaces 4.0)
I can give examples to this.
What has driven the richfaces-developer, to layout such a
awfull, garstly and time consuming command?
With it, i must write separate servlet's to do the same, what
i can do with '<h:commandLink' , that calls only simple backing bean methods!!
Also i found, setting the background-color for a header dataTable and dataScroller-
elements, are 'nightmares' and needs a workarround!
