Yes, my issue is the second case. 

When enter is clicked any where in the form, I should be able to call
the same action as below <h:commandButton


<h:commandButton styleClass="button" value="Go" id="name_btn"
type="submit" action="#{searchBean.orgSearch}"></h:commandButton>

If you press 'enter' when your cursor is on form field, the form will be
submited - no problem - so I  suppose that it's NOT what you are
thinking about.

BUT If you would like to submit form whenever enter is pressed, the only
one way is to use javascipt and sth like  'click hidden link'.

Hello Friends,

How to call managed bean action on pressing Enter Key on the key board?

I have a simple form with a text field and button. When user hits enter
key on the key board I should be able to call searchBean.orgSearch (same
action as commandButton)

I am using Myfaces1.1

<h:form id="searchForm">

<td><h:inputText id="empName" size="30"

<td>&nbsp;&nbsp;<h:commandButton styleClass="button" value="Go"
id="name_btn" type="submit"


All suggestions are welcomed...
