why dont you try an expression (EL) which evaluates to true. try
<h:selectBooleanCheckbox id="chechbox" value="#{true}">
</h:selectBooleanCheckbox>

This should work

Better: why don't you bind it to a Boolean property of a managed bean? Now you can't get the checked value in the JSF side without nasty workarounds.

This is especially a problem when you attempt to bind ORM domain objects to JSF views.

Unfortunately, a lot of databases don't support boolean primitive types, so people end up having to fake them with string or numeric values. The stock ORM mapper often doesn't realize that they're binary, so it presents their database-defined types.

However the HTML checkbox control in JSF only works with true booleans. The resulting data type mismatch gives exactly this kind of error.

There are a couple of potential solutions:

1. Supply a JSF converter that translates the boolean checkbox value to/from the target data type.

2. Configure your ORM system to do the translation (this may be vendor-specific).

3. Supply an intermediary between the actual domain object and the UI. That is, a fa├žade or decorator that remaps the data type.

Sorry, but there is no means of ORM domain objects in the topicstart.
