How to submit a page without submitting the values in JSF?
Posted on 2011-02-11
I have a JSF application running on a Weblogic Server.
In a form, the user can enter some inputs and submits the page. He will be taken to a review screen, where the user can review the inputs he had entered in the previous page. In the review screen, there is an option to edit the inputs. On selecting the "Edit" button the user will be taken back to the input screen. If the user made some changes to the inputs but wishes to cancel the changes, he will be taken back to the review screen again.
In this case, I'm seeing the newly entered values being updated in the view object and the same is displayed on the review screen. How we can avoid updating the new value on canceling the changes in JSF?
Note: The edited values should be updated only on selecting the Submit button.
Any suggestions please...
