Subject h:outputText converters and null objects
Date Fri, 04 Jan 2008 14:22:26 GMT
I have switched to using the Sun-RI because of a bug in the Weblogic
Portal 10 JSF portlet bridge.

However now it would appear that I get a side effect when feeding a null
value to an output text, we have a lot of data structures where null is
used to indicate optional fields. E.g a regulation with no end date is
identified by a null date.

<h:outputText value="#{e.endDate}" converter="DateTimeConverter"/>

When I explicitly specify the time converter like this with myfaces the
converter gets activated, but with the RI this doesn't work. Any ideas
why there is a difference in behaviour and which behaviour is correct?

Both MyFaces and Sun-RI are the 1.1.1 versions bundled with
WeblogicPortal 10.

The application which I am porting to portlets was written using
myfaces, so if I have to use the RI because of the weblogic bug, this
could mean a lot of work to fix this...
