Subject Re: concurrency problem ajax value change event and page submit
Date Fri, 02 Jul 2010 13:51:33 GMT
Yes the issue is that you use a command button which in case of a single 
button maps automatically to input type="submit" if you hit enter
the ajax request is issued and subsequently parallely the full submit is 
issued as well.
You can resolve that by using commandlinks or <h:commandButton 
type="button"> which should resolve the auto enter issue introduced by 
the input type="submit".

The problem with the error is not a bug but an xhr request issued 
asynchronously then a page refresh triggered at the same time which is 
more a problem of the spec relying on parallel xhr requests. MyFaces 
then correctly issues an http error due to the timing issue triggered 
because of the xhr request having failed due to the subsequent refresh 
issued. But as usual with those timing problems they occur depending on 
the current state of the issue, hence in a non reproducable manner.

So the final behavior after fixing is

change + enter -> onchange
button press -> action
