    How to render template without displaying it?

    Vlado Mandic Newbie

      I tried to use org.jboss.seam.faces.Renderer.render(/path/to/template.xhtml), but it does not work in all cases, only simple ones with plain HTML (note that I can display template with browser, so there is no error within template).


      So, is there any restriction for Renderer.render() method, in terms of (supported/allowed) template tags? API doc for Renderer class is not descriptive to much.
      Note, that I want to avoid multiple templates (one for HTML, one for email, one for PDF, ...)


      Workaround that I have found is based on servlet filters (which I would like to avoid also)


      Used Seam version 2.2.0, facelets version 1.1.15, richfaces version 3.3.2.


      Exception:



      java.lang.NullPointerException
           at com.sun.facelets.FaceletViewHandler.writeState(FaceletViewHandler.java:778)

      Thanks for any help!
