Subject [jira] Reopened: (MYFACES-702) outputText generates wrapped span element in a portal
Date Mon, 07 Mar 2011 17:53:59 GMT


Michael Freedman reopened MYFACES-702:

Reopening because PORTLETBRIDGE-186 was filed. (

I.e. The problem reported in MYFaces-702 was reopened against the bridge indicating that the
1.1 Bridge change/patch to work around this should be applied to the 1.2 bridge.  

I am not so sure.  It appears that the real bug is that UIViewRoot.createUniqueId calls ExternalContext.encodeNamespace
on the id before returning.  It shouldn't make this call.  Rather it should just return the
uniqueId it generates.  My guess is this was very old code that was added to deal with portlet/portal
namespacing issues.  However, the bridge now handles this more correctly by not impacting
the component id -- rather it introduces its own UIViewRoot that provides a NamingContainer
which ensures all clientIds are namespaced via this externalcontext call.

Is this correct, or is there some valid reason that createUniqueId calls encodeNamesapce?

> We have a JSF app that runs as a portlet and normal webapp.
> In the webapp the <h:outputText value="some text"/> appears as I would expect (i.e.
just the text) however the same thing in the portlet gets rendered as:
> <span id="form-id:handleMetaDataEvent_id36">some text</span>
> This becomes a problem when you are trying to use outputText to render part of a URL
or to become a JavaScript string as the output includes the span element!
> Looking at the renderer code for outputText it appears the span gets generated when the
id does not start with "_id", so the question is where has the "handleMetaDataEvent" prefix
for the id come from?
