    rich:datatable database-level pagination and sorting

    L V Newbie

      Hi all,
      I'm using a rich:datatable and a rich:datascroller for paging the table. I set up all the stuff to get database-level pagination (I mean a Dataprovider combined with an ExtendedTableDataModel) and it's working fine. Now I have a lot of trouble with the sorting mechanism because is always invoked the one provided by the ModifiableModel (in-memory sorting). Is there a way to provide a custom method for sorting?
      My patch at the moment is to disable built-in sorting and manage it in my backing bean.
      Thanx in advance.
