I'm currently looking at working with and deploying JSF portlets into Liferay 6.0.5, sitting on JBoss 5.1.0. I ran into a lot of trouble trying to port some JSF-y/Seam-y/EJB-y stuff I had lying around, so I thought I'd start simple and work my way up.

I could generate generic portlets using the NetBeans Maven archetype for Liferay portlets absolutely fine, but it's rather irrelevant because I wanted JSF portlets

I took an example JSF portlet from http://www.liferay.com/downloads/liferay-portal/community-plugins/-/software_catalog/products/5546866 and attempted to deploy into a clean, vanilla installation of Liferay 6.0.5/JBoss 5.1.0 to no avail. The log messages are reproduced at the end of this.

This particular example was actually tested for GlassFish and Tomcat, so it's not particularly helpful considering I'm deplying into JBoss. I tried ripping it apart and removing the jsf implementation contained within as there is a jsf implementation shipped with JBoss (Mojarra 1.2_12, in this case).

This particular problem arose because the JBoss that comes bundled with Liferay is severely cut down, but also includes some other things you wouldn't find in a vanilla Jboss 5.1.0 instance.

In this case, there was a problem with the versions of the Portlet Bridge. I was packaging one, and there was one provided by Liferay's Jboss.

I presume that sorting this out would have fixed it, but I've decided that the JSF lifecycle and the Portlet lifecycle really don't mesh well together, so it's time to look at other types of Portlets for me.
