I am developping a small app and I have a requirement that I do not know how to do.
BTW, I am really new with JSF

So, let's talk business and market data.
I have a query that returns me a message and I display that message in a table.
I am recreating the book for the actual contract that I am searching for.
One bean contains one message and each page that I will display represents a message.
So now lets say that I have 10 messages returned from the query, this means taht I will have 10 pages available.
I used datatable to represent my data and datascroller for pagination.

Here is what I am trying to do.
Since all these pages represent the market state, a lot of prices are available.
On the same page I have a search button that returns on the same page the pages where a price entered as input is found.
So far I was able to do that.
Now that I have all the pages available on screen, I want to be able to click on one of the page and jump to the right page. That is the piece that I do not knwo how to do.

Here is what I have so far in my JSP

Any suggestion is welcome.

(I use tomahawk for extended funcionality)

My table is contructed using a dataTable and having a dataModel on the backend.

So imagine that the table is contructed and have a datascroller for pagination.

At the bottom of the page you a search option that would allow you to find an information taht could be repeated in multiple pages.
The result would tell you the page(s) number where to find that information, and by clicking on the page number it would jump straight to that page.

I have a solution but it is a TERRIBLE HACK.
I looked how the datascroller was contructed in the html page. It is using a couple java scripts

In my code I reuse the syntax by just adding the page number.
It works but it is terribly ugly. I am using the newspapertable
here is the code

Same thread in JAVA FORUM with the code that I have that I could not insert here
