    Seam-Richfaces application - home page loading very slow

    Pramod Nair Novice
      Gurus
      I have a seam/richfaces application. It is taking too much time to load the home page. From the access log (copied below) I can see some delay in the .js file loading (rich faces files). Any help will be much appreciated. I have to go to PRODUCTION soon and I am sure users are going to complain about this.

          Maybe you'd better give details about the page and components. Maybe the home page's source code. But without these, I experienced same problem at first, when using tabpanel with switchtype set to client.

              The thing that worries me is the time taken to load between framework.pack.js and org/richfaces/ui.pack.js  It takes almost 7 secs to load (please see below the timestamp). I am not sure where the time lag is. Is this the browser is taking so much time to load the js.

                Can you post your web.xml?


                I had this problem when I first started a seamgen'd project. Removing all RichFaces configurations (leaving the defaults, I guess) from web.xml solved the problem.

                  I am using richfaces a lot. So I don't think it is an option for me to remove richfaces references.

                      It sesms like the TidyParser was taking too much time to parse. When I added the foll in web.xml it speeds up the loading.

                      <context-param>
                         <param-name>org.ajax4jsf.xmlparser.ORDER</param-name>
                          <param-value>NONE</param-value>
                      </context-param>

                      Hopefully this will not cause any other issues.
