My problem is, I have given UI components ID for those UI components such as id="ItemIdLabel", id="itemId" in my JSf file..But they come as id="j_id_jsp_1291078540_2:ItemIdLabel" and id="j_id_jsp_1291078540_2:itemId" in view source
I want to stop JSF to prefixing this j_id_jsp_1291078540_2 with user declared component ID because this prefix value seems to be generated at runtime and I am not able to locate these UI components in java script DOM tree while searching by programmer declared UI component ID
