    Problems with upgrading to a newer Richfaces version

    Tamas Morocz Newbie

      Hello!

      I have the folllowing (strange?) problem:

      We develope a web application for 3 years,
      used components:
      Tomcat 5.5.23, JSF 1.1, RichFaces 3.0.1,Tiles, Tomahawk.
      Everything worked correctly so far.

      I would like to use rich:tooltip, and I realized that this component was
      develpoed later (in another project we use it with Richfaces 3.1.2, Faclets)
      so I decided to ugrade to Richfaces 3.1.2.

      I thought that only replacing the old ajax4jsf.jar and richfaces.jar with the new 3 richfaces-x.jar would be enough.
      After restarting the webb app ( and later restarting the whole Tomcat )
      and aftter navigating away from the first jsf page to any other jsf page I got this exception:


      java.lang.ClassCastException: [Ljava.lang.Object;
      javax.faces.component.UIComponentBase.restoreState(UIComponentBase.java:1114)

      com.weblib.ui.servlets.filters.SecurityCheckFilter.doFilter(SecurityCheckFilter.java:87)

      I checked everything in web.xml and faces-config.xml,
      even tried some slight changes but the same error occuers always.
      I tried the latest 3.1.3 version too. No avail.

      (Downgrading to older version stops this error,everything goes fine.)

      I do not have any idea what to do now.

      Please help me with some pieces of advice!

      Thanx in advance.

          Clean your module directory and make sure that you have no serialized sessions hanging out.

          That should be a good first start.

          Whatty

            Thanx for your advice.

            I deleted the directory "${tomcathome}/work/Catalina/mywebapp/", but it did not help.

            We do not deploy war-s ( in development environment),
            but hold the whole project inside the Tomcat's webapps dir.
            There not exists the old jars.
            (The "Clean and build" does not touch the jars in the lib dir, but the classes dir.)

            Well I do not know where to check "serialized sessions" ..

            But may be i misunderstood what you meant by module directory.

              I would blow away everything under the

              [workspace]\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.wst.server.core\tmp0\wtpwebapps\mywebapp

              directory, but not the directory itself and rebuild / redeploy. See if that helps, otherwise hopefully someone else has a solution for you.

              Also make sure that any applicable TLD(s) (if any) match the version of your jar files

              Whatty

                I highly apreciate your advice.

                But i use Netbeans, and this project has a custom ant build.xml.

                I do not know about any place where "old" ajax4jsf and RichFaces components/fragments could be hidden. :-(

                The "WEB-INF/classes" contains only our business logic classes, customMessages.properties, and labels.properties.

                    and another correction:

                    the calendar.tld is -of course- inside the WEB-INf and not WEB-INF/lib.
