    Problem in displaying data in Richface DataTable

    Jayesh Mahato Newbie



      I am stucked with datatable. I am using this on jsp page:


      <h:dataTable value="#{AList.myArr}" var="capt"  border="1" 
                      headerClass="header"   rowClasses="row1,row2">
                          <h:column >
                              <f:facet name="header" > <f:verbatim>State</f:verbatim> </f:facet>
                              <h:outputText value="#{capt}" />


      i am using arraylist to store some data in a bean Alist:


      package demo;
      import java.util.*;
      import java.io.*; 
      public class Alist {
                ArrayList<String> myArr = new ArrayList<String>(10);
                public Alist() 
          myArr.add("Italian Riviera");
          myArr.add("Jersey Shore");
          myArr.add("Puerto Rico");
          myArr.add("Los Cabos Corridor");
          myArr.add("Coney Island");
          myArr.add("Karlovy Vary");
          myArr.add("Walt Disney World Resort");
                public ArrayList<String> getMyArr() {
                          return myArr;
                public void setMyArr(ArrayList<String> myArr) {
                          this.myArr = myArr;


      I am using Richfaces 4 Final in JBoss Dev Studio 4 GA using JBoss 6 server.

      The display page only displays the header and no data from the arraylist. Kindly help me...

          Hi Jayesh,

          have you defined your Class as Managed Bean? (JSF 1.x: faces-config.xml, JSF 2.0: @ManagedBean, @SessionScoped (for example) annotations in your Class).


          Best regards,

            A very strange thing happenned. Yesterday the whole day i was tried to run it by changing codes, face-config, republishing etc but it didn't run. Today the first thing i did was open up the app and run it and there it was, running very well, displaying all the data. earlier whne i changed the static content, it did reflect in the web page, so publishing was working.


            Anyhow now i have to implement sorting but the moment i click in the sort header, nothing happens except that the URL is appended by a # sign. Here is the sorting class which i have defined:

            package demo;
            import org.richfaces.component.SortOrder;
            import javax.faces.bean.ManagedBean;
            import javax.faces.bean.ViewScoped;
            import javax.faces.bean.SessionScoped;
            public class sorting {
                      private SortOrder capSort = SortOrder.unsorted;
                      public void sortByCaps(){
                                if (capSort.equals(SortOrder.ascending)) {
                    } else {
                      public SortOrder getCapSort() {
                                return capSort;
                      public void setCapSort(SortOrder capSort) {
                                this.capSort = capSort;

            And the modified xhtml page is as below:

            <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> 
            <ui:composition xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
                    <rich:dataTable value="#{AList.myArr}" var="capt" id="table">
                        <rich:column sortBy="#{capt}" id="name" sortOrder="#{Sort.capSort}">
                            <f:facet name="header">
                                <a4j:commandLink value="Sort by Name" render="table"
                                    action="#{Sort.sortByCaps}" />
                            <h:outputText value="#{capt}" />

            Kindly help me with this...


            Edit Note: In IE, I am getting a warning error on bottom-left of the browser which on clicking displays 'RichFaces' is undefined. Its a warning error though.
