    Accessing View attributes from JSF component

    John Manko Newbie

      I'm trying to access a View's attributes from a JSF component.  I have two pages that share a third with in included as a subView, and I'd like to hide a few fields depending on which page is including it.  To accomplish this, I set an attribute on the main View, and try to read it from a subView component.

       

      For example:

      Page 1:

      <f:view>

          <f:attribute name="hideZipCode" value="true" />

       

      Include page:

           <h:outputLabel value="Zip Code"  rendered="#{facesContext.viewRoot.attributes.containsKey('hideZipCode')}" />

       

       

      I get the following error:

      javax.servlet.ServletException: Class javax.el.BeanELResolver can not access a member of class javax.faces.component.UIComponentBase$AttributesMap with modifiers "public"

      root cause

      java.lang.IllegalAccessException: Class javax.el.BeanELResolver can not access a member of class javax.faces.component.UIComponentBase$AttributesMap with modifiers "public"

       

      How can the view attributes be accessed from a component?
