Originally posted by M Burke: I am new to faces. I want to build a table from a collection of objects, and make a link for each to open that item on a different form. In the past, I added request parameters to my links to know which one is clicked. Like this: a href='view.jsp?row=1&col=1' then do a request.getParameter('row') in my servlet. How do I do this equivalant in JSF? I can't even find any examples of a faces action even accessing the request object.
