Ajax4Jsf <a4j:form data=”broken!”>

A4J:Form is missing several specified ajax functions

(View this issue on the JBoss tracker here. Keep reading, there is a fix… download fix)

The issue:

When using the a4j:form component, the data=”#{}” the properties defined in the data element list are supposed to be available after the a4j event in the data JavaScript variable; however, with <a4j:form> the attribute is not correctly causing the JavaScript data variable to be populated.
