Yes, take a look.

I agree here. To implement things like progress bars without being able 
to use even simple javascript is a fairly steep requirement. Perhaps 
though, if you are creative enough you can solve it...

I never said redirect was ideal. Yes it has its complications, but if 
you want the URL displayed in the browser to have any real meaning in 
JSF, you will need redirect.

There are other scopes besides request scope. Aside from the obvious 
session scope, there are in-between options like the new Conversation 
tag. See [1]

You have a tough task to implement that progress bar without javascript, 
and I fear you won't find an easy solution. The only advice I can give 
you is to keep trying to think outside the box and experiment.
