      Create a Seam based JSF page and include an outputLink or other control + have the id for the control reference EL then see the exception that is generated when the page is rendered.

      Description

      When specifying an ID for a control (seems to affect all / near all) using an EL expression, it doesn't matter what the EL expression method returns, the following exception is generated.

      EXAMPLE

      <h:outputLink value="http://www.jboss.org" id="#

      {x.id}">LINK</h:outputLink> <!-- the x.id() method returns "123", etc. -->
      <h:outputLink value="http://www.jboss.org" id="XXXX#{x.id}

      ">LINK</h:outputLink> <!-- the XXXX prefix doesn't even get it to pass -->
