Just to clarify:
- RF-5240 is not affecting ActionListener, it's really about another types of listeners
- Tried h:commandLink and a4j:commandLink under MyFaces, both handle exceptions identically, so I guess you have to ask Sun RI for this change, not us.
If you are interested in technical background, compare implementations of javax.faces.event.MethodExpressionActionListener class in both Sun RI and MyFaces.
Thanks for clearifying that. Then I will address it to them.
