Hi,

I recently started learning JSF and everything seemed quite simeple until I tried running my first JSF webapp.. Whenever I try to run the login.xhtml on the server, instead of showing me the webpage, eclipse shows me a file download dialog box! Can someone please help me with my first app?

Man, this is odd!!!

Does the file to be downloaded belong to your project at least?

It's really strange, if you don't write code for generating a SaveAs dialog box, that should not open. Have you not written code for that in your login.xhtml?

You'd better share the code with everybody here so that we can properly try to help.


NOTE: I'm still in search of how to open a dialog box from the browser, prompting the user for download. It seems that your problem might be the solution I'm in need here.

Regards!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
