 Description  « Hide

When a java.util.Date managed bean is declared in faces-config.xml as follows:

<managed-bean>
    <managed-bean-name>now</managed-bean-name>
    <managed-bean-class>java.util.Date</managed-bean-class>
    <managed-bean-scope>request</managed-bean-scope>
</managed-bean>

Then GlassFish 4.0 b89 throws the following exception:

This problem does not occur when e.g. java.util.HashMap is used instead, or a concrete backing bean class.

Note: this construct has always worked fine in all other servers, including GF2/3, Tomcat 6/7, JBoss 6/7 and TomEE 1.

Such a bean is been declared in JSF utility library OmniFaces and therefore blocking its usage. See also https://code.google.com/p/omnifaces/issues/detail?id=234
