Error description

  • PortletContainer: JSF managed beans used in DataTables loose
    input values if bean validation fails.
    
    Using a JSF Managed Bean with a list of objects. The list is
    shown in a <h:datatable> element with <h:inputText> fields.
    Additionally there are some other <inputText> fields on the
    form. The input fields are mapped to a model object with bean
    validation on some fields (e.g. @NotNull).
    
    If the validation for these fields fail, the input in the
    datatable is lost.
    This only occurs if the page is shown as a portlet. Using the
    page as "normal" web page, everything works fine.

Problem summary

    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server versions   *
    *                  8.0 and 8.5 and Liberty users of            *
    *                  JavaServer Faces (JSF) MyFaces 2.0 and 2.2  *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: A JSF portlet's form inputs nested      *
    *                      within a table lose their local         *
    *                      values if validation fails.             *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Validation state of form inputs nested inside a table is lost
    between the ACTION and RENDER phases of the Portal lifecycle.
    This causes a JSF portlet's form inputs to revert back to
    their original values after validation failure.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JSF MyFaces 2.0 and JSF MyFaces 2.2 code was updated to
    keep local values of form inputs nested inside a table if
    validations fails. To enable this fix, set the following
    context parameter to true: com.ibm.ws.jsf.saveUIDataRowState
    (true / false-default)
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.0.0.13, 8.5.5.9 and 17.0.0.1. Please refer to
