> JspStateManagerImpl (and maybe other classes) uses request attributes for caching state.
This causes a wrong view to be used if there is more than one JSF-based portlet on a single
page. MyFaces saves the serialized view of the first portlet on the page as a request attribute.
To avoid re-serialization, MyFaces subsequently checks if there already is a request attribute
with a serialized view. As request attributes are not scoped to a single portlet (the portlet
specification does not require this), the serialized view of the first portlet will be found
and used by the second portlet.
> This usage of request attributes may also be the cause of MYFACES-549.
> As JSF, of course, does not need to know about the portlet environment, it cannot be
required that MyFaces saves such information "per view", e.g. by prepending the viewId to
the key for the request attribute (although this would solve the problem). IMHO any request
attributes added during lifecycle.render() should be removed after lifecycle() render by the
portlet bridge. (The same applies to request attributes added during lifecycle.execute(),
but these should also be re-added before lifecycle.render().) I have implemented this in my
portlet bridge as a workaround.
