I believe that the data displayed includes the state values as of the time the View was rendered.

I am a little unclear about the "invisible field" that was mentioned, but one of the things that the JSF h:form element does is construct an invisible text item for tracking View State, yes.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
