JSF portlet form fields retrieval

Hi All,
I have a jsp page with JSF components that is submittted as a form.
Part of the data table as below...

Upon submission, if i do the following in the processAction method of a portlet, i am getting null value for those parameters ..
I am sure that i am populating the values when the data table is rendered, ruled out that they may be null in the first place.

String activityId = request.getParameter("activityId");
String secondaryId = request.getParameter("secondaryId");

System.out.println("Activity Id ==>"+activityId);
System.out.println("secondaryId ==>"+secondaryId);
Both are coming as null.
What is wrong here ?

Thanks in advance.

hi Mike,

Please check JSF portlet with example.

In processaction() it will always returns null..

because here this form fields mapping with jsf managedbean object.. right?

you can get directly from managedbean variables.


I agree. Here's the link:
