I have an EGL JSF application which I recently migrated to RBD 8.5 and WAS Express 8.5 from RBD 8.0 and WAS Express 6.1. When I run the application within RBD using the WAS 8.5 test environment everything works fine. However, when I run the application off our IBM i5 using WAS Express 8.5 I get an error saying, "The website cannot display the page". The application contains a button that the user can press to display an HTML link. The link is to an external BIRT report. In the link is a parameter that is passed (employee #). At this point the user can click on the HTML link to open up a BIRT report in another window. Here is where the application fails. The minute you click on the HTML link and then try to go back to the application to do something else the error occurs. When I check the log files on WAS I see an error that states the following:
E com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.servlet.ServletWrapper service SRVE0014E: Uncaught service() exception root cause Faces Servlet: javax.servlet.ServletException: viewId:/index.faces - View /index.faces could not be restored.
What does this mean and does anyone have any idea how I fix this?
