    Nikolai Alexeev Newbie

      Since RF 4.2.1 CR1 (4.2.1.Final didn't fix it) i get this exception almost on all pages:

      With RF 4.2.0 everything works fine. What is this?

          We are seeing the same problem when we upgraded to RichFaces 4.2.1 this morning.  We have a page witth a lot of tabs and nested tabs.  It works with 4.2.0, but not 4.2.1. 

          • 2. Re: Facelets exception in RF 4.2.1
            Brian Kates Newbie

            We are using Sun Java Faces 2.1.7

              I think it's safe to say that many people aren't getting this problem (myself included thankfully) so perhaps you

              should provide additional info about your environment, looks like you're on WebLogic.

                Yes, I'm on Weblogic 10.3.5, JSF 2.0.4 (which is supplied with this version of weblogic), Openfaces 3.1 (nightly) and RF 4.2.0 (which work correctly) or RF 4.2.1 (which cause the exception above).

                  We are using Tomcat 7.

                    The problem is reproducible on postback when outputPanel has child text(html) nodes.

                    E.g.:

                     

                    <a:outputPanel>

                          <span></span>

                    </a:outputPanel>

                     

                    Update:

                    In RichFaces 4.2.1.Final default value for keepTransient attribute of outputPanel changed, refer to org.richfaces.component.AbstractOutputPanel:

                     

                    @Attribute(defaultValue= "true")

                    public abstract boolean isKeepTransient();

                     

                    In RichFaces 4.2.0.Final default value was 'false'.

                     

                    So, during encoding - all children of UIOutputPanel are set as non-transient (even nodes of UIInstructions type).

                     

                     

                    Workaround:

                     

                    public class UIOutputPanelWorkaround extends UIOutputPanel

                    {

                      public boolean isKeepTransient() {

                        Boolean value = (Boolean) getStateHelper().eval(Properties.keepTransient, false);

                        return value;

                      }

                    }

                    and in faces-config:

                      <component>

                        <component-type>org.richfaces.OutputPanel</component-type>

                        <component-class>com.example.UIOutputPanelWorkaround</component-class>

                      </component>

                      Maybe you're right but i've failed to reproduce it on simple page with a4j:outputPanel and child text nodes. Nevertheless i want to try your workaround but i've faced a strange problem with getStateHelper() method because i get this error: "The method getStateHelper() is undefined for the type UIOutputPanelWorkaround". Though i can see that it's used all over UIOutputPanel i couldn't find its implementation neither in UIOutputPanel nor in any of its parent classes. How to fix it? Can i return just false?

                        Andrey Zhemoytuk Newbie

                        The method is in JSF class:

                        javax.faces.component.UIComponent#getStateHelper

                        I guess you need to add compile time dependency on jsf library.

                        And yes, you can just return false untill you want to set that keepTransient attribute from outside.

                         

                        To reproduce the issue a postback is needed. E.g. as following (button needs to be clicked for error to appear):

                        <h:form>

                            <a4j:outputPanel>

                                <span></span>

                            </a4j:outputPanel>

                            <a4j:commandButton value="Click me"/>

                        </h:form>

                         

                        The issue is reproducible also for RichFaces before 4.2.1.Final when keepTransient attribute explicitly set to true.

                          I've just noticed that i tested it with 4.2.0 library not 4.2.1 or 4.2.2, so it's not surprising that everything worked fine. Now i can reproduce it even without any child nodes . I created bug in JIRA, correct it if something's wrong.

                          And thanks for workaround!

                                My RichFaces Version is 4.2.3Final and JSF is Mojarra 2.1.14. Please any idea?

                                  The problem with IndexOutOfBoundsException does not seem to be related to the issue described in this topic. I would recommend to create a new topic with more details how you get the problem, what is your xhtml code, etc.
