I have a strange problem which I have been trying to fix for some time but am stuck in one place and don't quite understand what's going on here.
My index page looks like this:
The commandButton sends the user to a next page when I want to get the selected position from the selectOneMenu. The problem is that nothing is sent. When I select some value from the Menu the 'peek' outputText is rerendered properly and I can see the correct selection. However it is not sent to the next page and Bean. Surprisingly when I change the value of the parameter to a fixed String it works!!! So i.e. this:
Is read correctly in the next Bean!!! All of the beans are requested scoped with RichFaces @KeepAlive annotation (I tried without the annotation and it's the same).
Here I post a snippet of the faces-config.xml
Does any one have an idea why this doesn't work? I have used the managed-properties parameters like that in the past and it worked (meaning using some dynamically changed values not a static String).

BalusC gave me a solution on stackoverflow. To solve this problem the commandButton must be rerendered when the selectOneMenu value changes.
