I have been writing a portlet application using MyFaces 1.1.5, Java 5 with uPortal 2.5.3. I have been somewhat successful in getting the application to work inside of uPortal, but I have hit a snag. Whenever I use a MyFaces selectonemenu component and use the getter and setter methods along with the jsp action, the backing bean and the selected item in the list do not bind, the result is a null. For curiosity sakes, I created a normal application out of my code and the component getter/setter method works as expected. Are there any considerations that I have overlooked to use JSF/MyFaces in a portlet? Any ideas or insight greatly appreciated.
