Hi all,

I am working in RAD6 with Websphere portal server 5.1. I am using JSR 168 with JSF of Sun RI.

My portlets are retaining the state within the same session. I have set the expiration cache of the Portlet to '0' in the portlet.xml and also programmatically but to no effect. Example i have two pages search and home page.When I do a search and then go to home page, and then come back to the search page I get the search results .But actually i need only the initial state of the search page.

When I move to a page in Portal, I need to see the initial view of the Portlet with the Backing Bean re-initialized.

Please let me know if there you know of any way t o solve this problem?

Yeah, that's a tough one. It goes against Portal paradigms. Portlets keep their state even as you navigate away from them, and that's how Portal is designed.

By the way, if you're using RAD 6 with WebSphere Portal, you might as well use the JSF libraries that come with RAD 6 for Portal. They are quite good, though a little buggy sometimes. The tooling works rather well too. Plus, they are integrated much better than the Sun RI with RAD 6 and Portal, and if you have issues, you can always call Tech Support
