JSF and EL (Expression Language) rant !

Beware people… Referring to missing methods in a Bean from a XHTML page using the expression language yields an exception, but referring to a *private* method, doesn’t to nothing. No exception, no message, just plain and simply nothing.

I spent hours trying to understand why my application didn’t work, and now I know it: Be careful that your exposed method is not marked as *private* in your bean!!
