commandButton/commandLink not working inside datatable

Hi Ranchers,

My Facelets .xhtml is typically as below.

<h:form>

<h:dataTable value="#{bean.valueList}" var="value" rows="15">
<h:column>
<h:inputText id="text" value="#{value.text}" />
</h:column>
<h:column>
<h:commandButton value="Go" action="#{bean.action}" >
<f:setPropertyActionListener value="#{value}" target="#{bean.value}" />
</h:commandButton>
</h:column>
</h:datatable>
</h:form>

The rows are displayed along with the Go buttons properly. But when I click on "Go" button, the action method on the bean is not invoked. Also, the "value" property in the bean is not set. The commandButtons placed outside the datatable (and inside h:form) are invoked correctly. The bean is in request scope. Please let me know what could be the issue and the resolution using JSF/RichFaces.

You need <a4j:keepAlive bean="#{bean}" />

my guess is you have the bean in request scope?
