We are in the process of migrating our web application from JBoss 4.0.5 to 5.0. We use an older version of AJAX4JSF pretty extensively in the app would also like to move to Richfaces during this process. We can get most of the application working but we ran into problems where Servlets were forwarding to JSP pages using commands like:
((HttpServletRequest) request).getSession().getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher( "/main.jsp").forward(request, response)
