could you please try your application with most recent RichFaces, i.e. 4.2.2.Final?
If you are interested in Twitter Bootstrap, please have a look on our Bootstrap demo  and its Git repository .
Thanks, I opened an eye on the bootstrap project in the sandbox, and I checked out the codes periodically. But it is still under development...so I do not want to use it in my current proejct.
The Richfaces 4.2.x(after 4.2.0) introduced annother problem I think many people have encoutered here, the keepTransient default value of a4j:outputPanel was changed to "true", which will cause exception when use a4j:outputPanel to wrap text or html ...
Can you post the first few lines of your web.xml please - Hantsy, I wasn't sure what version (of richfaces) you were
using when this last worked.
I am using 4.2.0.Final now.
<!-- Richfaces config --> <context-param> <param-name>org.richfaces.enableControlSkinning</param-name> <param-value>false</param-value> </context-param> <context-param> <param-name>org.richfaces.skin</param-name> <param-value>plain</param-value> </context-param> <context-param> <param-name>org.richfaces.resourceOptimization.enabled</param-name> <param-value>true</param-value> </context-param>
Ah no, I meant the first few lines literally, meaning the web-app...
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> <web-app xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" version="3.0" xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_3_0.xsd"
Thanks for that, I'd thought that perhaps if you were using a pre v3 servlet container the richfaces resources servlet would not
be auto-registering but you are, so that theory is dead in the water.
I am using JBoss 7.1.1.Final...
