    a4j commandlink no action inside rich:extendedDataTable

    Peter Boivin Newbie

      I am using Richfaces 4 for our company project.  I am fairly new at JSF and Richfaces.  I need to perfrom a sort on the columns of the extendedDataTable.  I followed the Richfaces demo example, but the action is not being fired.  I tried a simple helloworld example to see if the method from the bean would be called, and it is not.  So I don't think the problem lies in the sorting aspect.  When I am debug mode, the breakpoint inside the sort method is never called.  Below is my code.  Could you please look at it and see where I might be going wrong. 

       

      Other troubleshooting I have tried: getting rid of all forms in the page, changing all forms to a4j:region, calling the sort method outside of the datatable.  When this is done the sort method is called but the variables needed to do the sort are inside the table.
