Hi All,

how to bypass the request to Jsf controllers from a servlet?

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Rajest!

I'm not sure what you mean here. The JSF controller is a servlet. The FacesServlet, in fact. To bypass it, just code a URL that doesn't match the servlet's URL selection pattern.

However, if you do, don't expect to be able to use the FacesContext, since FacesContext by the FacesServlet is constructed when a JSF request is processed and destroyed when the request has completed. So if you bypass FacesServlet, you won't have a FacesContext.

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