    issues persisting h:inputText placed in an a4j:outputPanel

    marian furdui Newbie

      Hi!


      I have the following issue:
      I can not save the content of the items placed under a4j:outputPanel.


      Scenario:

      In the following sample, by default, the description is hidden.


      1. show the testOptionalDetails section unchecking the selectBooleanCheckbox

      2. populate the name and description fields

      3. press the createdTest button


      Result:

      only the name value is persisted while the description value is always null in the database.


      What is wrong in the following code? I need to persist the description also.


      Thank you!


      Environment:





      RichFaces: 3.3.2.SR1
      Seam: 2.2.0.GA
      JBoss: 5.1.0.GA
