I have been using JSF with WSAD and RAD6 for 18 months so I know my way
around reasonably well, but I have clearly become accustomed to the comfy
chair that RAD puts you in. I am now having a rather basic problem getting
it to work on WTP.

I installed all the WTP pieces from scratch and WTP itself appears to be
working as designed. I then added the JSF support but chose to use MyFaces
instead of Sun RI, seeing as everyone says it is a better implementation.

I have a simple app that has one page with an input "name" field and a
button, and the navigation passes to another page which says "hello name" -
it is a tutorial out there on the Web I found. The backing bean is
correctly defined in faces-config.xml as far as I can see. I run the
initial page, and it displays, but when I type in a name and press the
button, expecting it to invoke the backing bean called PersonBean, instead I
get the following which I think means it cannot find my backing bean.

HTTP Status 500 -
type Exception report
description The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it
from fulfilling this request.

Hi Chris,

A problem at runtime is nearly always a classpath problem of some kind.
With that said, you may want to post this question on a MyFaces newsgroup.

What jars have you included in your JSF Implementation Libary? Does
someone else montitoring this list have any suggestions?

Yes, this sounds like a generic JSF issue, unrelated to WTP/JSF project.

Something like that should be asked on MyFaces user list (since MyFaces
is used) or on a generic JSF forum (like SUN's or RAD's).

Having said that, one would need to see the JSP and faces-config.xml
to be able to tell anything about what might've gone wrong. The exception
suggests that the managed bean wasn't created.

Well Hello again, Yury...

OK, Tomorrow I will remove MyFaces and replace it with the Sun jars and see
what I get. I looked at the source for FacesServlet in the MyFaces package
and saw that it doesn't even have as many as 202 lines, so I'm a little
confused. But for the moment, this is what I have. First the jsp I run:

InputName.jsp
==========

My backing bean PersonBean is in a package called first, and the .class file
does get copied to WEB-INF/classes/first. The properties file
Messages.properties is also in WEB-INF/classes and is found correctly, and
messages from it are displayed, although I'm not sure it is reliably copied
over from the src folder. Another RAD comfort zone -- I am obviously
suffering from withdrawal here.

Just a wild guess here, first of all which jsf version are you using?
Secondly di you have any tangeling classpath references into the RI?
or any sun related or third party jsf lib (which has explicit hooks into
the sun class hierarchy instead of javax.jsf...

the line:
com.sun.faces.renderkit.html_basic.HtmlBasicInputRenderer.ge tConvertedValue(HtmlBasicInputRenderer.java:111)

does definitely not look like myfaces, myfaces cannot have and does not
have to my knowledge any referenes into com.sun.xx..
(It is not allowed to)

Just a wild guess here, first of all which jsf version are you using?
Secondly di you have any tangeling classpath references into the RI?
or any sun related or third party jsf lib (which has explicit hooks into
the sun class hierarchy instead of javax.jsf...

the line:
com.sun.faces.renderkit.html_basic.HtmlBasicInputRenderer.ge tConvertedValue(HtmlBasicInputRenderer.java:111)

does definitely not look like myfaces, myfaces cannot have and does not
have to my knowledge any referenes into com.sun.xx..
(It is not allowed to)
