As probably many of you, I build a form page in steps. At least big forms.

In this one I am having a weird efect:

I built a form with a commandLink and a selectOneMenu inside.

First I put a empty selectOneMenu,

<h:selectOneMenu id="selMen">
<%-- TODO <f:selectItems value="#{}"/> --%>

and a commandLink,
<h:commandLink id="goSecLink" value="to 2nd form" action="#myActions.goSecForm}" styleClass="bigLink"/>

After testing all work fine. Just as expected, if I click on the link, the page with form2 appears.

Now: if I put a value to the selectOneMenu ( like value="#{myFields.selId}" ), either in the selectOneMenu tag or in the selectItems one ( like value="#{myFields.thingsToSel}" ), the link (commandLink) doesn�t work anymore!!!

It seams to request something to the server after clicking on it, but it stays in the same page.
No forward to the form2 page + the "commandLink action" is not being activated

Also other commandLink�s which work whith actions do not work.

Any idea?
