Subject [jira] Reopened: (MYFACES-2544) UIViewRoot skips uncorrectly encodeBegin
Date Wed, 10 Feb 2010 17:58:28 GMT


Leonardo Uribe reopened MYFACES-2544:

I'll revert the previous patch. The use case you have to consider is when there is an error
on a beforePhase listener. If there is, context.getResponseComplete() could return true, inclusive
on render response phase. Long time ago, I review MYFACES-2374 and It is known ri does not
do this, and this one cause an error on a compatibility test, but in this case the previous
behavior is the expected one (the javadoc says so and this one comes from jsf 1.2).

Please note maybe there is a misundersanding about what FacesContext.renderResponse() and
FacesContext.getRenderResponse() do. The meaning of this constant is allow jsf to skip phases
when an error occur. For example, if a validator throws a RuntimeException, ProcessUpdates
and InvokeApplication phases should not be executed, so they will be skipped and RenderResponse
phase should occur. Why UIViewRoot.encodeBegin skip render the view? because in jsf 1.2 this
is considered an error and encodeBegin should not happen, instead, the error page is published.

Now, PreRenderViewEvent could be used to change the view to be rendered. Just take a look
at org.apache.myfaces.lifecycle.RenderResponseExecutor. Its meaning and behavior are different
to PreRenderComponentEvent. Maybe the real bug is UIViewRoot does not call 

context.getApplication().publishEvent(context,  PreRenderComponentEvent.class, UIComponent.class,

before call encodeBegin(), like UIComponentBase.encodeBegin() does. Maybe this one was ignored,
because usually UIViewRoot does not render anything.

Note to solve this issue we have also to check if the new behavior introduced with ExceptionHandler
api is compatible with the original jsf 1.2 algorithm.

Jakob, could you take a look at this one again from this point of view?
