JSF, strange form action generated

Hello all,

I'm having a problem with the JSF form action.

My spring controller is mapped to /users/form.html GET and POST requests:

But JSF generates an action to "/":

So my controller doesn't pick up the action of the form.

If I use firebug to change the action (in firefox) to /users/form.html the action does get picked up as it should by my controller.

I'm using Spring Web Flow btw to my flow handling but I guess this hasn't got anything to do with my issue.

All tips more than welcome since I'm a bit lost here!

Thanks in advance and have a nice day!

I would suspect Spring rather than JSF. It is Spring who specified the form action and passed it to the JSF. Try a Spring forum.
I agree. Here's the link:
