I have previously tried to add DeltaSpike to a JSF+RichFaces+CDI portlet webapp without success. Then I came across this example by kenfinni in the PortletBridge docs:
This stresses the importance of disabling the client window render mode, something that I hadn't done in my previous attempt, so I followed the steps and managed to get the DeltaSpike example portlet deployed on GateIn*. I was able to access the 'Scopes' page and perform an 'AJAX Refresh' with the command button, but the other buttons threw up errors along the lines of:
15:48:41,935 ERROR [portal:UIPortlet] (http--xxx.xxx.x.xx-8080-1) Portlet render threw an exception: org.exoplatform.services.portletcontainer.PortletContainerException: Error process faces request
Caused by: javax.portlet.PortletException: Error process faces request
Caused by: javax.portlet.faces.BridgeException: javax.faces.FacesException: WELD-001303 No active contexts for scope type org.apache.deltaspike.core.api.scope.WindowScoped
And the portlet then fails to render.
I also had problems with the other main pages, 'Messages' and 'Type-Safe View-Config', so none of the functionality seems to be working correctly.
* There are a number of ClassNotFoundExceptions and NoClassDefFoundErrors thrown up during deployment. This thread in the DeltaSpike mailing list suggest that at least some can be ignored, but I haven't checked them all yet:
So before I put some more effort into understanding the example and try to track down what's going wrong, I wanted to check whether this example is still expected to work 'out of the box' (with the additional steps outlined in the PortletBridge docs) with GateIn 3.7.0. Can anyone confirm that this is the case?
Please note that I'm fairly new to all these frameworks/technologies, so there's likely to be something I'm missing or have done wrong. I've attached the ds.war file that I deploy in case it's a problem with my build process.
