Exception handling - JSF swallows exceptions in certain phases

    Details

      Description

      I can't reproduce this right now but I'm sure I spent several hours
      with a debugger only to find out that I had a typo in a value binding
      and that the exception was completely swallowed during an early JSF
      phase (UPDATE MODEL probably). There was nothing in the log, the
      action phase just never executed. This is a major issue (obviously)
      for another subtle reason: Beginners have trouble understanding the
      JSF lifecycle and processing phases - I know I did. You begin to hate
      JSf when you don't understand why a certain phase does not execute.
      I'd start reproducing it by generating an NPE in a value binding
      setter, that should do it.
