Subject [jira] Created: (PORTLETBRIDGE-14) Setting the request character encoding during a RenderRequest
Date Fri, 16 Nov 2007 16:05:43 GMT
Setting the request character encoding during a RenderRequest

                 Key: PORTLETBRIDGE-14
             Project: MyFaces Portlet Bridge
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.0.0-SNAPSHOT
         Environment: Tomcat 5.5.20, Pluto 1.1.4, MyFaces 1.2.1-SNAPSHOT (locally patched
            Reporter: Bernhard Huemer
            Priority: Critical

The JSF specification requires the ViewHandler to store the content-type in the session at
the end of the render-response phase (see "Determining the Character Encoding"). On
subsequent render requests the view will be restored (actually, a new one will be created
but that doesn't matter) and during this task the ViewHandler tries to set the request character

/// myfaces-api/src/main/java/javax/faces/application/

 * Method must be called by the JSF impl at the beginning of Phase <i>Restore View</i>
of the JSF
 * lifecycle.
 * @since JSF 1.2
public void initView(javax.faces.context.FacesContext context) throws FacesException
  String _encoding = this.calculateCharacterEncoding(context);
  if(_encoding != null)
    catch(UnsupportedEncodingException uee)
      throw new FacesException(uee);	


However, this attempt fails as the portlet bridge requires the request to be an ActionRequest.

///  portlet-bridge-impl/src/main/java/org/apache/myfaces/portlet/faces/context/PortletExternalContextImpl

public void setRequestCharacterEncoding(String encoding) throws UnsupportedEncodingException,
  if (mPhase != Bridge.PortletPhase.ActionPhase)
    throw new IllegalStateException(
Request must be an ActionRequest");

  ((ActionRequest) mPortletRequest).setCharacterEncoding(encoding);
