JSF does not call action in managed bean

Hi *,

I am trying to migrate a small web application to JSF. The app will run on WAS 6.1, I decided to use JSF RI 1.1.01.

I have a main JSF view from which the user can navigate to other pages. The problem is that the main JSF does not call any action on the associated managed bean as soon as I add an

element. I also tried to use value-binding

but without success. As soon as this selectOneMenu resides on the form in the view, nothing (except of a roundtrip) happens... I inserted <h:messages/> but did not get any validation errors. No output to the console or runtime errors as well...

Here are some fragments:

Main_Backing (

Thanks a lot for your help!

Check if there is an error being generated on any setter of your components.

At this point, I think both WAS 6.1 and JSF 1.1 have passed end of life.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
