Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Liberty and IBM WebSphere            *
    *                  Application Server Traditional Profiles -   *
    *                  JavaServer Faces (JSF) MyFaces 2.0 and 2.2  *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: An inconsistent behavior is observed    *
    *                      for required field validation when the  *
    *                      javax.faces.INTERPRET_EMPTY_STRING_SUBM *
    *                      ITTED_VALUES_AS_NULL context parameter  *
    *                      is enabled                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When the
    javax.faces.INTERPRET_EMPTY_STRING_SUBMITTED_VALUES_AS_NULL
    context parameter is enabled, it affects display behavior for
    input fields that have the required attribute. Values that had
    previously been populated by the model are redisplayed on
    required input fields after empty strings are submitted on those
    fields.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JSF MyFaces 2.0 and JSF MyFaces 2.2 code was updated to fix
    this inconsistent behavior. To enable this fix, set the
    following context parameter to true:
    org.apache.myfaces.INTERPRET_EMPTY_STRING_SUBMITTED_VALUES_AS_NU
    LL_CLEAR_INPUT. Fix details can be found at
    https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MYFACES-3525
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 8.0.0.14, 8.5.5.13, 9.0.0.5 for WebSphere Application
    Server Traditional Profile and fix pack 17.0.0.3 for WebSphere
    Application Server Liberty Profile.  Please refer to the
