Subject Re: Geronimo 2.2.1 with JSF 2
Date Wed, 29 Jun 2011 22:00:20 GMT
Hello Kevan,

thanks for your answer again. finally i have some success now, and the
problems had nothing todo
with Geronimo :)

i tried deploying the app to a normal tomcat6 installation and there i had
the same issues that the
webapp  did not work.
i created the faces project initially using maven and an archetype from
richfaces4, which created the
whole project layout and a simple demo app using a bean and a xhtml file
with an faces template.

unfortunately i did not verify the web.xml that was created during that
phase. The web.xml missed the
jsf servlet and the servlet mapping, only some richfaces context parameter
where in there. so with the
correct web.xml the webapp works now, in tomcat6 and in geronimo.

but i am still not able to deploy the webapp using Eclipse tooling, i need
to upload the war and the
deployment plan using the console. and, whether i give a deployment plan or
not, i need to prevent
the myfaces libs from loading into geronimo. so the deployment plan alone
does not do the trick.

however, i can run a jsf2 app now in geronimo. and there will be a solution
for the rest of the issues
as well... :)

thank u very much for your time and hints.
