Subject Re: How are you paging large datasets?

"using datascroller then you cannot convey starting at the middle of a
result upon returning from another page"

Yes you can. See my code for the extended data table:

  public void setFirst(int first)
    ValueBinding vb = getValueBinding("first");
    if (vb != null)
      vb.setValue(getFacesContext(), first);

Then use EL in your data table:

<t:dataTable first="#{myBean.first}" >...

There is no bug to fix, but you have to work around the fact that the
dataScroller calls UIData.setFirst(number). By default, all JSF components,
when invoked with a set method (and not a value binding set), store the
local value as a member value and never check the value binding value again.
By overriding the behavior of the HtmlDataTable, you can make sure that
calls to setFirst update the EL expression value instead of the UIData's
member variable. So it will always use EL to determine the first row.
