I am facing the same problem with richfaces.
I defined a custom StateManager in faces-config:
This is working well with afj1.1
It is not working with richfaces 3.1.4 and 3.1.5.
Is there a workaround?
Should I open a JIRA ticket?
We have the same (or similar) problem. We are using MyFaces 1.1.5 and were pretty happy with the possibility of using state compression since our states are REALLY big (lots of components..). The fact that rich faces does not allow to define an own state manager makes me nervous. Is there really no way to circumvent the rich faces statemanager or won't rich faces simply not work with another statemanager?
Thanks for any hint,
