JQuery Primefaces RemoteCommand Parameter Issue

Posted on 2011-03-20
Last Modified: 2012-06-21

My goal was to call this page with a queryString parameter (http://localhost:8080/page.html?scrapeU ... :// and then try to pull the value from the requestparametermap off the facescontext but its null in my init method. My second option is to set an inputhidden in my jQuery(document).ready function but the below syntax doesn't work. Anyone know how to get this to work either way? Thanks for the help!

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<html xmlns=""
<ui:composition template="/WEB-INF/facelet/layout/external/main.xhtml">
   <ui:define name="content">
   <h:form id="scrapeFrm" binding="#{bookmarklet.bookmarkletFrm}">
   <h:inputHidden id="scrapeURL" value="default"/>
   <p:remoteCommand name="scapeImages" process="@this,scrapeURL" actionListener="#{bookmarklet.loadImages}" update="imageGrid"/>
   <script type="text/javascript">
          var value=$('#scrapeURL').val();

Open in new window

public class Bookmarklet extends BaseAction{
   private UIForm bookmarkletFrm;
   public void init(){
       if (!FacesUtils.isPostback()) {
          ExternalContext context = FacesUtils.getExternalContext();
          String scrapeURL = context.getRequestParameterMap().get("sourceURL");

Open in new window
