Subject RE: linkDummyForm not rendering on every page
Date Thu, 11 May 2006 10:48:22 GMT
Thanks Jonathan.

Yes, my ExtensionFilter is mapped to /faces/*
The link works well when I use a redirect instead of a forward in my
welcome page. 
I am just wondering because this differs from the behaviour in the
previous myFaces version.

I posted about this yesterday under a different topic. As far as I
can see, in 1.1.3 the linkDummyForm javascript is now added by the
Tomahawk ExtensionsFilter for some strange reason.

It sounds as though you're using ExtensionsFilter, but it's not being
applied to your welcome page (is it only mapped to /faces/* ?). You
could either change the filter mapping, or substitute a browser
redirect for your server-side forward, i.e. instead of jsp:forward use

<% response.sendRedirect("/faces/launch.jsp"); %>

This would go back to the browser and tell it to send another request
for your faces JSP page, which would then be processed by the filter.

HTH, Jon
