    Updated to latest richfaces-ui. Multiple errors emerge

    Martin Jozef Newbie

      I got the impression that all the releases since 3.1.0 have a lot of quirks and very error prone
      I would like to hear opinions on that from others.

      In meantime i have this Exception that i can't solve. Any advice would be great.

      Using
      JSF 1.2_06 RI
      Facelets 1.1.14
      richfaces-ui-3.1.3.SP1.jar
      richfaces-impl-3.1.2.SP1.jar
      richfaces-api-3.1.2.SP1.jar
      Websphere 6.1.013 JDK 5 impl J2EE 1.4 spec

          did you use ibm JSF implementation?

            Martin Jozef Newbie

            I use Sun RI implementation latest release
            I use facelets because the JSP spec we use is older from what JSF1.2 requires

            and I now let's try this Error for size :

              It will be easier to create bug wilth sample(war) attachment

                I actually resolved the last exception i posted

                If you notice in the Exception :

                 java.lang.NullPointerException
                 at com.sun.faces.renderkit.html_basic.HtmlBasicRenderer.augmentIdReference(HtmlBasicRenderer.java:1
                96)
                 at com.sun.faces.renderkit.html_basic.LabelRenderer.encodeBegin(LabelRenderer.java:86)
                


                Error occured in the LabelRenderer
                and in the method HtmlBasicRenderer.augmentIdReference

                this gave me a clue that it might be something with a label component and it's id or lack of

                i went into my code and noticed that i have a label component without specified id. So i provided a unique id effectively removing the exception .

                from this i learned that i need to provide id's for labels as well.
                but i will check with the spec if that is the case since in 1.1 that was not an issue.

                  You wrote you use

                  richfaces-ui-3.1.3.SP1.jar
                  richfaces-impl-3.1.2.SP1.jar
                  richfaces-api-3.1.2.SP1.jar

                  In my opinion all richfaces jars must be from the same version.

                  @martinjozef: Please check this.

                  @ilya: Or am I wrong?

                    Good notice

                    but indeed when i downloaded the

                    richfaces-ui-3.1.2.SP1-bin archive file

                    it contains such files:

                    richfaces-api-3.1.2.SP1.jar
                    richfaces-impl-3.1.2.SP1.jar
                    richfaces-ui-3.1.2.SP1.jar
                    richfaces-ui-3.1.3.SP1.jar

                    initially i used the 3.1.2 version only,

                    I used the 3.1.3 to see if any difference, but i suspect it's probably the same package.

                      I a really at a loss here
                      do you guys know how this output can help me determine why i get the exception :
                      This is a component tree that Facelets prints in time of the exception

                      What i learned so far is that when i contain only one tab the page renders without a problem,
                      but as soon i added the second tab, i get an exception :

                        Ok, let me share my experience with this..

                        It turns out that RichFaces is not at fault in any of my cases.

                        i am building Component tree dynamically for the UI

                        hence a lot of my components do not get id assigned explicitly, i expected them to auto generate.

                        Well, Sun RI 1.2_06 is not so forgiving, it failed and it did not provide a clean reason why.

                        I decided to build with Maven Apache MyFaces 1.2.1 snapshot, i needed the latest since it contains a patch that allows me to run on pre-JSP 2.1 container.
                        Once started my project, all of my pages worked correctly.

                        Printing only warnings :

                        UIComponentBa W javax.faces.component.UIComponentBase getClientId WARNING: Component j_id72 just got an automatic id, because there was no id a

                        In any case thanks for the attentiveness.

                        I will now go bother SUN RI for doing such a bad job.

                          Which should we be using?

                          richfaces-ui-3.1.3.SP1.jar

                          or

                          richfaces-ui-3.1.2.SP1.jar


                          Both are in the 3.1.2SP1 download.

                            richfaces-ui-3.1.2.SP1.jar is only one that exists

                            3.1.3 has not been released.
