    Default JSF directory structur

    Can somebody tell me if there is a requirement for JSF pages to be in a directory called "pages"? I have created an application and when all the pages are either in the root or in a file called "pages" everything works fine. However when I try to move the pages into a directory called "test" the pages are no longer recognised. I get a Error 500 for all the pages in the "test" directory!!!

    Just to be clear, the file directory was:

    Web Pages > pages > dashboard.xhtml

    and this was accessible at URL:

    http://localhost:8080/Application/pages/dashboard.xhtml

    I then changed the file directory to:

    Web Pages > test > dashboard.xhtml

    and I get an error 500 at URL:

    http://localhost:8080/Application/test/dashboard.xhtml

     <from-outcome>admintest</from-outcome>
                <to-view-id>/pages/dashboard.xhtml</to-view-id>
                <redirect />

    Try replacing that 'pages' to test

    This is my problem:

    This works:
            <navigation-case>
                <from-outcome>admintest</from-outcome>
                <to-view-id>/pages/dashboard.xhtml</to-view-id>
                <redirect />
            </navigation-case>

    This doesn't:
           <navigation-case>
                <from-outcome>admin</from-outcome>
                <to-view-id>/test/dashboard.xhtml</to-view-id>
                <redirect />
            </navigation-case>

    Lets see the piece of code which returns the outcome "admin" and "admintest"?

    Brace yourself, its pretty hard core...

    <h:commandButton value="admintest" action="admintest" />
    <h:commandButton value="admin" action="admin" />

    I have been experimenting with other directory names (admin, user etc.) and it really does only seem to want to work with a directory called "pages"!!! I seem to be able to have unlimited* directories under the "pages" and still work.

    (*I've tested 3!)

    Does the Error 500 occur on the welcome page? or after you've clicked on of those command buttons?

    After 3 hours I have finally found the answer... If you have ever read "the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy" you'll know what I mean when I say that the answer is on par with "THE ANSWER". In Netbeans you can't move files by dragging them to a new directory, you have to recreate them from scratch. If you drag them the IDE just doesn't acknowledge that they exist!
