Subject [jira] [Created] (MYFACES-4016) Error when submitting an Ajax request for an element without an ID

             Summary: Error when submitting an Ajax request for an element without an ID
                 Key: MYFACES-4016
             Project: MyFaces Core
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.1.17
            Reporter: Leon Steffens

When submitting an Ajax request that was triggered by an element with a name, but without
an ID, a Javascript error will be thrown in the nodeIdOrName() function in _Dom.js.

The code calls the getElementsByName() function on "this", which throws an error that getElementsByName()
is not defined for "this".  It should call document.getElementsByName(), same as the byIdOrName()

251	                //last check for uniqueness
252	                if (this.getElementsByName(elementId).length > 1) {
253	                    //no unique element name so we need to perform
254	                    //a return null to let the caller deal with this issue
255	                    return null;
256	                }

This was noticed when using the ICEfaces 3.3 data table in their compatibility component suite,
which uses hidden fields without IDs to submit the selection of rows.

If you want an example that reproduces this error I can create one, but I think static analysis
of the code is sufficient in this case.

The problem is also present in trunk.
