I am new to JSF. I have just started to use/learn Sun's " Java Studio Creator 2" which allows developing UI (based on JSF framework). I have developed a simple page with a Drop Down list and a table, created 'master-detail' relationship b/w the DD and the table (as per one of the tutorials). It works but what I have noticed is that whenever I select a different value from the Drop Down List, the values in the table are refreshed (as they should be) but instead that only the table is refreshed, the whole page is refreshed (I believe a new request is sent to the server to get the whole page). Is there a work around so that this does not happen?
