    A newbie question

    Michael Max Newbie

      I experience a very strange problem with richfaces (v3.0.0).
      So, under a WEB-INF/lib directory I placed next files:
      ajax4jsf-1.1.0.jar
      commons-collections-3.0.jar
      commons-fileupload-1.0.jar
      commons-beanutils-1.6.1.jar
      commons-digester-1.5.jar
      commons-logging.jar
      commons-codec-1.2.jar
      commons-el.jar
      commons-validator.jar
      jakarta-oro.jar
      jstl.jar
      oscache-2.3.jar
      richfaces-3.0.0.jar
      myfaces-all.jar

      A JSP/JSF file is pretty primitive:
      <%@ page language="java" pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1"%>
      <%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsf/html" prefix="h"%>
      <%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core" prefix="f"%>
      <%@ taglib uri="http://richfaces.ajax4jsf.org/rich" prefix="rich"%>

      <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">


      My page

      <meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache">
      <meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-cache">
      <meta http-equiv="expires" content="0">



      <f:view>
      This is my JSF JSP page.

      <rich:panel>
      <f:facet name="header">
      <h:outputText value="Header" />
      </f:facet>
      Content
      </rich:panel>
      </f:view>



      The problem that panel codtent popupated in a wrong place, over the panel header, ie like

      This is my JSF JSP page.
      Content
      +------------------+
      | Header |
      +------------------+
      | |
      +------------------+


      Where is my code incorrect?
      Thank you

          Yes. This works exactly like expected. You cannot use the plain text inside the JSF components. Only JSF 1.2 or facelets eliminate this restriction

          So, you can have:

          <rich:panel>
           <f:facet name="header">
           <h:outputText value="Header" />
           </f:facet>
           <f:verbatim>
           Content
           </f:verbatim>
          </rich:panel>


          or
          <rich:panel>
           <f:facet name="header">
           <h:outputText value="Header" />
           </f:facet>
           <h:outputText value="Content" />
          </rich:panel>

            Thank you, but the problem still unresolved.
            I rewrited a jsp file as


            This is my JSF JSP page.
            <f:view>
            <rich:panel>
            <f:facet name="header">
            <h:outputText value="Header" />
            </f:facet>
            <f:verbatim>
            Content
            </f:verbatim>
            </rich:panel>
            </f:view>


            and have nothing in the content part, just

            This is my JSF JSP page.
            Header

              How about this one?

              <f:view>
               <rich:panel>
               <f:facet name="header">
               <h:outputText value="Header" />
               </f:facet>
               <h:panelGroup>
               <f:verbatim>
               Content
               </f:verbatim>
               </h:panelGroup>
               </rich:panel>
              </f:view>

                Just a box with "Header" :(
                Do I need something more than mentioned jars in a ../lib directory?

                Just FYI, in the /WEB-INF I have the next tld's:
                c-1_0-rt.tld
                fmt-1_0.tld
                fn.tld
                permittedTaglibs.tld
                sql-1_0-rt.tld
                sql.tld
                x-1_0-rt.tld
                x.tld
                c-1_0.tld
                c.tld
                fmt-1_0-rt.tld
                fmt.tld
                scriptfree.tld
                sql-1_0.tld

                  Ok. I am not sure you need all this stuff if you are going to work with JSF

                    I installed a local Tomcat server instead of Joss and ran my app. The end result is the same.
