How do I make a selection with h:selectOneMenu and redisplay the value in a h:outputText?

I have the following two JSF components defined:

With a button at the bottom of the page defined as:

In an Application scope bean, the method defined for valueChangeListener is:

public void clientIDSelected(ValueChangeEvent event) {
PhaseId phaseId = event.getPhaseId();
String oldValue = (String) event.getOldValue();
String newValue = (String) event.getNewValue();
if (phaseId.equals(PhaseId.ANY_PHASE)) {
} else if (phaseId.equals(PhaseId.UPDATE_MODEL_VALUES)) {
if (newValue != null) {
this.currentTransStartDate = newValue;

FacesContext context = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();

The navigation rule is defined as:

<from-outcome>no results</from-outcome>

When I click my single h:commandButton, the selected value from the h:selectOneMenu is not displayed in the h:outputText. The rendered h:outputText is empty:

I'd appreciate any help on this, this should be simple, but I guess I am missing the point.

I do have Kito Mann's JavaServerFaces In Action book, which doesn't seem to have a clear solution either, still a great book though.
