OpenCAF ( *.xhtml files ) project not working after migration from CAF Project ( *.view files )

Hi guys,

MWS 9.12

  1. I’ve migrated CAF project ( *.view ) using “Migrate to JSF 2.x” option (right mouse click on project folder -> CAF Tools).
    After that all files have *.xhtml extension.
  2. Later I’ve changed WEB-INF/web.xml config file by replace every occurence of “.view” to “.xhtml”. So far so good.
  3. Upload to MWS server.
  4. Now I try to open application link https://hostname:port/MyApplication/ but with no luck. Error 500.

problems.log from MWS looks:

Do you have any idea what is happen?

Solved!

In WEB-INF/web.xml I should leave “view” extension:

  <context-param>
    <param-name>com.webmethods.caf.faces.view.FILTER</param-name>
    <param-value>.*\.view</param-value>
  </context-param>

But I change it to

<param-value>.*\.xhtml</param-value>

My embarassing mistake…
