I've tried to launch richfaces archetype but it seems to have not been published on http://snapshots.jboss.org/maven2/.
Is there something i do wrong ?

You have to use : http://repository.jboss.org/maven2/

instead of http://snapshots.jboss.org/maven2/

hallo,

i am using Richfaces with the Portletbridge. It works fine. But if i use switchType Ajax the Rendered urls for example the tabPanel reloads the hole page to a bad request and not to the other tab in the Portlet.

With the other ui types it is the same.

switchType="ajax" = bad request
