I am a newbie to SEAM and have just started having a little play around with it. I have used Richfaces and use the default skin when running the seam setup but when I deploy the ear it keeps complaining with a SkinNotFoundException.
Are there any additional jars for richfaces that need to be included in the classpath?
This is a richfaces issue not seam.
your skin file needs to be in the classpath of the web app WAR file. If your using the standard ones they are included in the richfaces jar's that should be included in the WEB-INF/lib dir.
Look at a working example and compare that to your EAR.
