    java.lang.StackOverflowError Running BASIC JSF 2 example on Weblogic 12c

    1009231
      *I followed the very basic tutorial found here  example and cannot seem to get past the following error:*

      Error 500--Internal Server Error
      java.lang.StackOverflowError
      at weblogic.servlet.internal.ServletResponseImpl.addHeader(ServletResponseImpl.java:567)
      at javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponseWrapper.addHeader(HttpServletResponseWrapper.java:200)
      at javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponseWrapper.addHeader(HttpServletResponseWrapper.java:200)
      at javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponseWrapper.addHeader(HttpServletResponseWrapper.java:200)
      at javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponseWrapper.addHeader(HttpServletResponseWrapper.java:200)

      Pressing shift + F5 a couple times I can generate a slightly different stacktrace as follows:

      Error 500--Internal Server Error
      java.lang.StackOverflowError
      at com.sun.faces.application.ViewHandlerResponseWrapper.setStatus(ViewHandlerResponseWrapper.java:88)

      I have exhausted several hours searching the web and constructing new projects with no luck. I understand that the StackOverflowError is produced from bad recursion calls and infinite loops, however I can't see this as the case here.

      My current dev stack is eclipse juno (oepe-12.1.1.2.1-juno-distro-win32-x86_64.zip), m2e-wtp, weblogic 12c, Java EE 6 using JSF 2.1

      *If I export the war file using eclipse (Right click the project -> Export -> WAR file) then manually deploy it via the weblogic admin counsel the app works as expected. As soon as I add the project to the server inside eclipse and start the server I can no longer view the page. I noticed that in the autogenerated_ear_ folder per my domain that each project project folder is actually empty.*

      Any help would me MUCH appreciated!!

      UPDATE - Solved the problem! After adding JSF 2.1 in the pom.xml the JSF 2.1 checkbox was checked in project facets, however it did not add the faces-config.xml to the project. I simple created a new xml file named faces-config.xml under the webapp folder and added the following xml:
      <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
      <faces-config xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee"
      xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
      xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee
      http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-facesconfig_2_1.xsd" version="2.1">

      <application></application>

      </faces-config>

      I hope this helps others!
