Fixable in 5.1

  File=>New Project
In New Project dialog
  Web=>Web Application
  Project Name (AllJSPJSF)
  Source Structure: Java BluePrints
  Server: Bundled Tomcat (5.5.9)
  Context Path: /AllJSPJSF
  X Set Source Level to 1.4
    Set as Main Project                   (unset)
  X Java Server Faces
    Struts 1.2.7                          (unset)
  Servlet URL Mapping: /faces/*
  X Validate XML
    Verify Objects                        (unset)
The file AllJSPStruts/web/WEB-INF/web.xml will not validate.
There are two XML nodes for the servlet "Faces Servlet".
        <servlet-name>Faces Servlet</servlet-name>
Comment 4 ajacobs3 2006-06-03 02:31:36 UTC
There were more duplicate entries in web.xml.  <servlet-mapping> was duplicated.
The <context-param> nodes for com.sun.faces.verifyObjects, 
com.sun.faces.validateXml, javax.faces.CONFIG_FILES, and
javax.faces.STATE_SAVING_METHOD were triplicated.  Fixing these errors, I
managed to generate an application that was deployable in Tomcat.  Then, I got
the error that is in this bug report.  The log contains the entry

Jun 2, 2006 6:14:35 PM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardWrapperValve invoke
SEVERE: Servlet.service() for servlet jsp threw exception
javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: Cannot find FacesContext
        at javax.faces.webapp.UIComponentTag.doStartTag(

faces-config.xml is still empty and this may not be legitimate.

Comment 5 ajacobs3 2006-06-07 06:59:43 UTC
Regenerated the JSF.  No duplicates seen, so ignore the comments in my
previous post.  The web.xml looks valid.  But it is not.
The generated code is wrong in two places.

The fix for this bug involves changes to both index.jsp and web.xml.

In index.jsp, the anchor
   <a href="./faces/welcomeJSF.jsp">Java Server Faces Welcome Page</a>
should read
   <a href="/WebApp/welcomeJSF.faces">Java Server Faces Welcome Page</a>
In web.xml, the servlet mapping for "Faces Servlet" is
        <servlet-name>Faces Servlet</servlet-name>
and should be
        <servlet-name>Faces Servlet</servlet-name>
Comment 6 Libor Kotouc 2006-06-07 13:02:00 UTC
The servlet mapping is correct. welcomeJSF.jsp is referenced from the index.jsp
as /faces/welcomeJSF, thus /faces/* pattern is recognized and the Faces Servlet
is used. Of course '*.faces' way of mapping works also well.

There are two ways how to solve the exception.
1/ remove jbossweb-tomcat55.sar/jsf-libs directory, i.e. the server does not use
MyFaces, instead of it JSF libraries bundled with the Web module are used

2/ IDE mustn't package the JSF and JSTL libraries into the Web module and

must be added into the web.xml.

The second way will be used to fix this bug. Reassining to 'JSF' module.
