Subject [jira] Created: (TOMAHAWK-793) inputSuggestAjax doesn't work due to phase listener issue.

inputSuggestAjax doesn't work due to phase listener issue.

                 Key: TOMAHAWK-793
             Project: MyFaces Tomahawk
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: AJAX Form Components
    Affects Versions: 1.1.4-SNAPSHOT, 1.1.5-SNAPSHOT
            Reporter: David Green

inputSuggestAjax doesn't work since the phase listener never gets called.  The APPLY_REQUEST_VALUES
phase is not entered in some circumstances, specifically if the RENDER_RESPONSE view completes
early as it does when the view root is null in the following LifecycleImpl code snippet:

 //boolean viewCreated = false;
            UIViewRoot viewRoot = viewHandler.restoreView(facesContext, viewId);
            if (viewRoot == null)
                viewRoot = viewHandler.createView(facesContext, viewId);
                //viewCreated = true;

If the null view root case is entered, the lifecycle is short-circuited and the APPLY_REQUEST_VALUES
phase is never entered, causing the ajax control to have no suggested values.

I was able to get the application to work as expected by subclassing the default AjaxDecodePhaseListener
as follows:

 * Override the default ajax support, since it doesn't seem to work in the 
 * APPLY_REQUEST_VALUES phase, since that phase never gets entered.  Process immediately
 * after the RESTORE_VIEW phase instead.
public class AjaxDecodePhaseListener
        extends  org.apache.myfaces.custom.ajax.api.AjaxDecodePhaseListener

	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1660766611978163100L;

    public PhaseId getPhaseId()
        return PhaseId.RESTORE_VIEW;

	public void afterPhase(PhaseEvent event) {

	public void beforePhase(PhaseEvent event) {
