I'm fairly certain this is a syntax problem, but I have been unable to figure this out. I've tried changing my bean code to being setters/getters and that didn't work. I've also tried using a do method, but no luck there either. I'm able to call an alert window from the jsp, but not the bean class, which makes me think this must be syntax. I would really appreciate some help with this, as I'm new to RichFaces.
Only when I was certain that the event was being fired at the browser and the expected request was being sent to the server would I start messing with the bean, or looking at the app server code.
By the way, what browser are you using? Does it work for a different browser?
