I have several a4j:outputPanels with attribute ajaxRendered="true" because they have to be updated in many usecases automatically (e.g. for displaying messages end errors automatically)
I have a commandLink on my page with limitToList="true".
According to the documentation I expected that only the elements from the 'reRender' property of this button are rerendered on the client.
But I noticed with a HTTPSniffer that the content of the outputpanels with ajaxRendered=true is also transmitted to the client.
Is this the expected behaviour or a bug ?
I use a4j version 1.1.0 and myfacesCore 1.1.4.
It is a feature. limitToList="true" is a declaration for client "insert only the parts from the id list. So, it is not prevent rendering for ajaxRendered="true"
P.S. It will be enhanced in the future.
