I have traced it in the debugger. The Nullpointer is generated in the .ServerConversationContext.flush....

Slightly painful to try and explain, but in essence I am trying to do a redirect (by capturing the url through a phase listener) and then redirecting through:

logger.info("Redirecting to page: " + page);
 facesContext.getExternalContext().redirect(page);
 facesContext.responseComplete();


This is something that used to work quite well in the earlier Seams.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks

Louis
