I am using JSF 1.2 ICEFACES 1.8 for a web app..

I have a created a backing bean with request scope..

When I use Action method in the bean, the bean object dies and creates again from scratch..I have the screen input parms available in the action method only..

WHen I display the JSF lifecycle, It starts the PHASE RESTORE_VIEW again. Please advise if this is normal..

Also How do I handle session timeout to force the user to log in again..

START PHASE RESTORE_VIEW 1
END PHASE RESTORE_VIEW 1
START PHASE APPLY_REQUEST_VALUES 2
END PHASE APPLY_REQUEST_VALUES 2
START PHASE PROCESS_VALIDATIONS 3
END PHASE PROCESS_VALIDATIONS 3
START PHASE UPDATE_MODEL_VALUES 4
END PHASE UPDATE_MODEL_VALUES 4
START PHASE INVOKE_APPLICATION 5
END PHASE INVOKE_APPLICATION 5
START PHASE RESTORE_VIEW 1
END PHASE RESTORE_VIEW 1

START PHASE RENDER_RESPONSE 6
END PHASE RENDER_RESPONSE 6


Thanks
Satya

JSF and request scope beans don't get along very well. JSF uses postbacks, and since request scope objects by definition (JSF or not) are created and destroyed on a per-request basis, they can't carry over data from one request (postback) to the next.

This led to a lot of people getting annoyed because they were being forced to use session scope for relatively short-lived objects. So in JSF2, view scope was added. View scope is a special type of session scope where JSF automatically discards the backing bean when the user switches to a new view.
