JSF commandButton -- method binding is not working

this question is regarding JSF

below is my part of JSF

 <h:commandButton id="create" type="submit" action="#{feedBack.create}" alt="#{bundle.buttonPost}" image="#{facesContext.externalContext.requestContextPath}/HTML-INF/images/buttons/post_button.gif"/>




here is my faces-config

<managed-bean>
<description>Feedback Bean</description>
<managed-bean-name>feedBack</managed-bean-name>
<managed-bean-class>com.vrx.web.bean.FeedBackRecordBean</managed-bean-class>
<managed-bean-scope>request</managed-bean-scope>
</managed-bean>



and finally FeeBackRecordBean create method


     public FeedBackRecordBean()
     {
          LogManager.getPlatformLogger().log(Level.INFO, "FeedBackRecordBean Constructor");
          this.reset();
     }

public String create() {

log(Level.INFO, "FeedBackRecordBean create Begin");

sendEmail();

return null;
}

I don't know why the JSF is not able to invoke the create method
any kind of help would be appreciated
I can see the log that is inside the constructor but not the one in create method

what i observed is that text fields are invoked, but not the method
so method binding is not working, i double checked spelling
where else can i check i have gone wrong

thanks

     Hi!

public String create() {

 LogManager.getPlatformLogger().log(Level.INFO, "FeedBackRecordBean create Begin");

sendEmail();

return null;
}

LogManager.getPlatformLogger()  -- already exists in my code, i just removed it in this post to make it short

try
public String create() {

 LogManager.getPlatformLogger().log(Level.INFO, "FeedBackRecordBean create Begin");

sendEmail();

return "";
}

If you are using the returned string value ( in your case null ) in comparison like String.compareTo(.) or Integer.parseInt(str) you will get NullPointerException.

yeah, i tried

return "";
and
return "dfault";


but my understanding is that method itself is not getting invoked. Since i am not able to see the log statement that is inside the method printed on the console

while i was able to see the log statements that are inside the Constructor

---
and coming back to JSF

i have included this JSF in another JSP using tiles

in that scenario, is there anything i need to know about method binding
or about using   f:view tags

what i was thinking is since my JSF is included in another JSP, i was wondering does the request URL goes back ?  i mean to say that different URL ( original page URL ) might be going back instead of my JSF ( i don't know, what i am talking, i am not that good )

I will put my question in simple way


can anybody give me some ideas about debugging JSF method binding

i have a java bean, which also contains a method which will email to me

and i am calling this method in my JSF using method binding
and i have a print statement in my method, which doesn't print in the console
which means this method itself is not getting called

i have included this java bean in configuration file

what else do i need to make sure and any other debugging ideas ?

I solved my problem myself

In my JSF, i have used couple of fields, which includes Date field

In JSF, you have to do conversion for Date and other non String fields. Since it displays only Strings. Read JSF tutorial more about it if you guys wanted to know. That was the reason, my method binding was not working and it wasn't displaying any errors too. Had a tought time debugging this.

I hope my points get refunded to ask more questions

thanks
