The problem isn't about scoped variables. It's about even simple things like changing labels, or adding a ValuePicker for a text field. They aren't showing up, at all.
I tried opening, changing then saving the faces-config.xml file, then rebuilt, and no change. I'm using a custom control that has an ApplicationLayout, which is used by each page. I changed the text in the title bar, rebuilt, then saw that change and the other changes! :-)
I then removed the extra text from the title bar, and the previous cached version returned. =8(
In the title bar, I tried using @Now, which displays, but still doesn't show the other changes.
Again, I tried in several browsers.
Any other ideas?
