I have a web application using myfaces 1.1.5.Now i wud like to add Ajax support to it.The main concern is to minimize the rework as far as possible.I have a custom div component which is used for positioning using css.For this component clientId is not generated.So when i give the id of a div for the reRender attribute, a4j tries to locate the coponent by clientId.So the partial rendering is not happening. Is there any way to override this behaviour.
wrap your custom div with a4j:outputPanel or point to any parent component.
P.S. It is not a good practice to avoid the client id in general
