I need to call a servlet from my JSF / xhtml file. But the servlet is not getting called for some reason.
But the page is not getting re-directed to the servlet and it stays on the same page.
I am using RichFaces for the UI framework.
Also, in another application I have used SUN's RI / jsp file and it worked for me.
The difference that I see is I use "javax.portlet.faces.GenericFacesPortlet" in the current application for rich faces to work.
In the working application, I used "com.sun.faces.portlet.FacesPortlet". Why is this issue in rich faces and not in sun's RI.
