SEVERE: Servlet.service() for servlet Faces Servlet threw exception java.lang.NullPointerException at com.sun.faces.renderkit.RenderKitImpl.createResponseWriter(RenderKitImpl.java:206)
There is either a bug in the old JSF implementation or you configured the stuff the wrong way. First upgrade your JSF implementation to the latest available at their homepage (currently 1.2_10) and see if it solves the problem. If it doesn't, then please paste the new stacktrace here along with your faces-config.xml. [ December 14, 2008: Message edited by: Bauke Scholtz ]

Yuppers, that was it. Oddly enough, I was using the latest version in the maven repo... but downloaded from the jsf site and restarted my project... working like a dream. Thanks for your help.
