Welcome to the JavaRanch, Michael!

I fixed your code tags. They were just close enough to working that they got boxed in tiny little boxes and most of the code couldn't be read.

I issue my standard disclaimer: JSF is Mode/View/Controller, but backing beans are not Controllers. In JSF the Controllers are almost always pre-supplied as part of JSF itself. You only have to develop the View templates and Models. So naming a backing bean "xxxxController" is improper.

The most common reasons for an action method not to fire is either because the name was mis-coded (or mis-capitalized), the code signature of the action method isn't valid (yours is, however), or that one or more of the form control values failed validation on submit.

The first 2 problems require inspection and comparison of your code definitions and references. The validation problems may be illuminated if you add an <h:messages/> element to your view template.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
