Hi All,

I have just started learning(2.x), I started developing login page.
when I enter value and submit the form, these values are saved and even I refresh it getting same value(Values Not being cleared).

How can I clear these values.

I googled for the same but I am unable to make it.

Awaiting for your answer.

NOTE: "login pages" may be fine for training purposes, but for real-world web applications, please use the J2EE built-in login system. User-designed security systems are almost universally insecure.

When a page is displayed in JSF, the control values displayed will be whatever values were in the backing bean (Model) associated with that page (View definition). To clear the display, clear the backing bean values. Do not attempt to directly manipulate the UI itself.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.

Think your bean is in session scope.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
