Spring – Primefaces doesn’t work

jsf-2liferay-6mojarraprimefacesspring

I've got a problem with using p:ajax update atribute element. When I use in my code <p:ajax update="@all" /> then I am getting javax.el.PropertyNotFoundException. When I use <f:ajax render="@all" /> I don't get any. I though that thouse tags are nearly same. Can anyone explain whats happening?

I am using mojjara implementation, primefaces 3.5 and Liferay jsf portlet bridge.

Example of stacktrace:

Caused by: javax.el.PropertyNotFoundException: /pages/views/personForm.xhtml @95,99 value="#{personManagementBean.item.contact.phoneNumber}": Target Unreachable, 'null' returned null

Two buttons:

<p:commandButton value="not working" action="#{enrollmentManagementBean.cancelEnrollment}">
    <p:ajax update="@all" />
</p:commandButton>
<h:commandButton value="working" action="#{enrollmentManagementBean.cancelEnrollment}">
    <f:ajax render="@all" />
</h:commandButton>                                                                     

Best Solution

OptimusPrime (main developer of Primefaces) states that update="@all" is a bad idea and primefaces does not implement it by design link to forum post.

What I do in order to get around the problem is rely on page refresh from javascript. Just put it in the oncomplete attribute of the button.

oncomplete="window.location.replace(window.location.href);"

I believe this should solve your problem if you still have it, or be here for future reference.
