> This issue appears when using Apache MyFaces as of version 1.1.2. The MyFaces project
states the following about their 1.1.2 release:
> [Quote]
> This is the first official release of what we are now calling the "core." The core refers
to the JSF 1.1 implementation as specified by JSR-127. It has passed Sun's TCK and is considered
to be 100% compliant with the spec.
> [/Quote]
> So as a conclusion, I think everyone who's still using MyFaces 1.1.1 should hurry upgrading
his code to be 1.1.2 compliant.
> Allthough Shale should be JSF-implementation-independant, it seems this issue appears
or not depending on the used MyFaces version.
> Steps to reproduce the issue:
> * Use a simple JSF submission form to which you add Shale's Token tag to check for illegal
form resubmissions.
> * As long as you submit the form correctly, everyting works fine.
> * Press F5 (page refresh) once, the browser warns about HTTP POST data resubmission.
> * Discard the warning and go on resending the same HTTP request.
> * Shale recognizes the resubmission and acts correctly (no application logic gets invoked).
> **** This is the part where the behavior changes according to what MyFaces version is
> With MyFaces 1.1.1
> --------------------------
> * Resubmit the form correctly (using the submit button).
> ==> The workflow goes on and the form is correctly submitted.
> With MyFaces 1.1.2 and above
> -----------------------------------------
> * Resubmit the form correctly (using the submit button).
> ==> Nothing happens. No new token is generated, so no application logic gets invoked
and the workflow stucks.
> I attached a sample project which demoes the issue.
> -- EDIT: 
> I forgot to mention that with both MyFaces versions, I set the context-param "org.apache.myfaces.ALLOW_JAVASCRIPT"
to false. In theory, this shouldn't make a difference since I'm using HTTP POST just as the
javascript would do, but I think it's worth the hint.
