    richfaces + adf faces + myFaces + facelets

    Alessandro Apostoli Newbie

      Hi all,
      I'm trying to integrate the following tecnologies:

      - JBoss RichFaces 3.0.0
      - Oracle ADF Faces 10.1.3.4
      - Apache MyFaces 1.1.5
      - Facelets 1.1.11

      running on Tomcat 5.5.17

      Pages using the ajax4jsf framework alone seem to work just fine, but those requiring external resources such as the richfaces ones do not render as expected. The ADF faces renderkit appears to be in the way and the richfaces skins do not get passed via the richfaces CSS serving. I thought as a workaround to generate the css files myself and statically include them but there might be a smarter way ;-)

      As an example when loading the following page the rich:suggestionbox is rendered without any styles applied to it, it appears that the ADF Faces render kit is somehow in the way as one can tell from the tomcat console log

      <af:document xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
      xmlns:ui="http://java.sun.com/jsf/facelets"
      xmlns:h="http://java.sun.com/jsf/html"
      xmlns:af="http://xmlns.oracle.com/adf/faces"
      xmlns:rich="http://richfaces.ajax4jsf.org/rich">
      <h:form>
      <h:inputText id="suggest" value="#{richFacesBean.text}"/>
      <rich:suggestionbox
      for="suggest"
      suggestionAction="#{richFacesBean.autocomplete}"
      var="item"
      <h:column>
      <h:outputText value="#{item.text}"/>
      </h:column>
      </rich:suggestionbox>
      </h:form>
      </af:document>


      I get on the tomcat console:
