I did some battery of test, and it is not SSL that breaks the rendering. It is that Richfaces slow over https. When I initially posted the comments, I have 2 weblogic 11 g server in a cluser hit from IIS. I got the above result. Now I use one weblogic managed server, over IIS and it works fine. When I click on the interface and do some validation, it is very slow on loading and the same result (broken rendering). I see a lot of aj4 java sript calls on the brower foot bar. I have attached a few –

Is there a way richfaces allow for caching the images ,rather than making multiple calls on each submit? Any tips. Moving to Richfaces 4.0 is a good option, but we need more time to do those integration
Have you tried to check if the other resources are cached? And in general check which server/request settings could cause that? I looked through the jira and find all the issues related to caching as resolved. Maybe you find new one.. but anywant need more info.
Post should be moved to RichFaces space. That space for RF design discussions.
