      Dear Gurus,

      I would to ask you if i can make oracle weblogic server 10.3.2 able to use JSF 2.0 rather than JSF 1.2, what are the steps required for that ? What i need is to work JSF 2.0 totally with all features such as parametrized function calling and others like @ManagedBean.

      Can you please help me ? Thanks for your support

          Hi Mohammed,

          You need to undeploy JSF 1.2 and then deploy JSF 2.0 from:
          MW_HOME/oracle_common/modules/oracle. jsf_2.0/jsf-ri-20.war

          I am not sure if JSF 2.0 was part of the release you are using (ADF 11.1.1.2 / Weblogic 10.3.2?)

          If not you should upgrade Weblogic to 10.3.6 and ADF to 11.1.1.6.

          Regards Peter

            Hi Peter,

            The current setup i have is the following

            1- JSF 2.0 Mojarra
            2- Spring 3
            3- i am using CDI for annotations features

            What i need, is to

            1- deploy this on a production environment (WLS 10.3.2 : which doesn't support JSF2.0) without upgrade (Because it has specific legacy deployments that i can't take the risk of this upgrade)
            2- Limit the modifications and the upgrades (if a must) on the domain level instead of the who application server!

            I was able to code annotated Backings using the CDI (@Named) and succeeded in developing basic jsf pages; but the problem is that the el (or i don't know what exactly) is not understanding some JSF/JSP features (for e.g #{loginBacking.login('somestring')} - doesn't work on weblogic while it is working on Tomcat7.0)

            PS. in IBM WAS, i was able to use (parent last) option, so that libraries come with the deployment load instead of those shipped with the application server. similar options regarding the weblogic.xml and weblogic-application.xml do not work ....

            your help is highly appreciated

              Sorry I thought that you were using ADF :-)

              I have no idea about this.

              Regards Peter
