    JBoss Portal + richfaces + facelets ajax problem

    Matt Rauls Newbie

      Using the 3.2.0 richfaces snapshot + the 3.2.0 portlet bridge I have gotten some RichFaces tags successfully rendering on JBoss Portal version 2.6.3. I've read a lot of other posts and I understand that these items working together is pretty new.

      My problem:

      It seems like richfaces tags that just render things, like rich:panel or rich:calendar (client mode) seem to work OK. But with both the rich:dataTable and rich:suggestionbox, they render OK when the page loads, but when it comes time for the component to talk back to the server using AJAX (next page, and make a suggestion actions, respectively) I get identical types of stack traces that I do not understand, and I am wondering if anyone has run across anything remotely like this before. Thank you for any ideas you might have.
