I am using IBM JSF that comes with RAD 7.5. I have a form with a submit button on clicking which I want validation to be performed and another button on clicking which I want the model to be updated without performing the validation. I thought immediate='true' does that. But what I am finding is that the model does not get updated when immediate is set to true. It skips the validation phase though. Is there a way of having command button skip the validation yet update model?
Do you really think it's a good idea to be able to set a value with data that may not be valid?

Well, What I want is to be able to navigate to a different form, fill that up and then come back to the same form and continue from where I left. So, unless I update the model, I will not be able to get back back to the original screen to continue my work. I want a button to do just this. I know I can open the form in a child window, but, I will have to write java script to refrsh the parent window which is not a neat thing to do.
