How to update a div and do partial submission using
This is to be done by nesting a
<f:ajax> in it.
<p:commandButton ... process="@form" update=":statusBlock" />
does exactly the same as
<h:commandButton ...> <f:ajax execute="@form" render=":statusBlock" /> </h:commandButton>
Note that the subtle difference with the PrimeFaces equivalent is that PrimeFaces defaults to
@form in the process/execute, while the
<f:ajax> one defaults to
@this, so you might need to explicitly specify
execute="@form" over all place where you didn't specify the
process attribute in the PrimeFaces component.
