I have not seen an answer that stands out in [Manning, JSFIA] so I thought I would ask it here:

I have a Login.jsp page. On a "success" outcome it takes me to another resource. Straight forward enough. However, I expected the new resource to be reflected in the URL in the location field of the browser, e.g.

Login.jsp > "success" > MyPage.jsp
Login.jsp > "failure" > Login.jsp

(All faces-config.xml navigation rule and cases apply)

My URL seems to always display "Login.jsp", or, depending on the browser, "Login.jsp#". I expected, possibly incorrectly because of the postback nature of JSF, "MyPage.jsp" ... the correct resource is returned as expected though.

Did I configure something wrong, or am I using the commandbutton component incorrectly, in its action attribute?

Oh, I'm using the Sun Java Visual Web Pack components part of NetBeans 5.5, not the RI components, if that matters.

Regards,
Tim

Do you have a "<redirect/>" in your navigation case?

Thank you. I read this in [Manning, JSFIA] and it just didn't pop when I went back looking for an answer to my "expectations."
