      In my application environment, Apache web server is filtered URI and forward request to JBoss Application Server. I need to have ajax calls prefix to the a CONSTANT application URI (say, prefix with webajax) instead of the default prefix with a4j_version (e.g. /a4j_3_1_2.GAorg.ajax4jsf) which may be changed. Searching the web landed me to the following URL


      However, I still having problem setting up the RESOURCE_URI_PREFIX in web.xml. I have been trying different ways to configure without any success.


       <display-name>Richfaces Filter</display-name>

      Do anyone have any experience doing the RESOURCE_URI_PREFIX setup ?

              Further looking at the code from Firebug trace. With the patch on 3.1.3. Our Apache env should have no problem forward the request to JBoss AS with the following code :

              <script type="text/javascript" src="/a4j_3_1_2.GAorg/richfaces/renderkit/html/scripts/suggestionbox.js.seam"/>

              For example, the prefix configuration will replace
              <script type="text/javascript" src="/webajax/richfaces/renderkit/html/scripts/suggestionbox.js.seam"/>

              What about the following code ?
              <script type="text/javascript" src="/a4j_3_1_2.GAorg.ajax4jsf.javascript.AjaxScript.seam"/><script type="text/javascript" src="/a4j_3_1_2.GAorg.ajax4jsf.javascript.PrototypeScript.seam"/>
              <script type="text/javascript" src="/a4j_3_1_2.GAorg.ajax4jsf.javascript.SmartPositionScript.seam"/>

              Note : the src in in the root directory.

              Would it replace by ?
              <script type="text/javascript" src="/webajax/ajax4jsf.javascript.AjaxScript.seam"/><script type="text/javascript" src="/webajax/ajax4jsf.javascript.PrototypeScript.seam"/>
              <script type="text/javascript" src="/webajax/ajax4jsf.javascript.SmartPositionScript.seam"/>

              Appending a directory /webajx (our example) in front ?

                With a fixed bug, all references to a scripts & styles will be prefexed with with your value. "a4j_3_1_2.GA" is a default value, and you can replace it with any other. Keep in mind, RichFaces framework will use it value for detect requests to a off-page resources, so it must be unique value for a your application.
                We have a plan to deploy release-candidate 2 for a richfaces 3.1.3 today ( 12/07/2007 ) to a Jboss Maven repository, version string for a Maven projects "3.1.3.CR2". This build also have a fixed prefix parameter bug.
