I am new in JSF. I need to display the Map value in JSF button. My code is below.

JSF code
<h:form id="contactcenterPr_form">
<h:dataTable border='1' value="#{ccSearchAndCaseProcessMB.processForOutBound}" var='var1' id="datatable1">

<h:commandButton type="button" id="hdngo1"
value=""#{var1.value}" styleClass="subBtn" />

public class ContCenterSearchAndCaseProcessMBean {
public Map getProcessForOutBound(){
Map map=new HashMap();
return map;

So, as per the above code I should be able to see four buttons as 'Claims' ,'Renewal','Query','Process' .
And I need to pass the key as a parameter in JavaScript method.

But , I am unable to see any thing.

Please, help me.

One thing that probably isn't helping: DataTables should be working with ordered collections. Otherwise the table wouldn't consistently display the same rows in the same places. A related issue is that while I'm too lazy to RTFM, I don't think there's an iterator available for the HashMap interface. I think you have to get the keySet or valueSet and iterate on that.

The actual EL for retrieving a hashmap property (value) goes like this:

For retrieving a literal key's value:

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
