Hi. For the very first example (Registration), under 1.2.2 How It Works, it says,
When the form is submitted, JSF asks Seam to resolve the variable named user. Since there is no value already bound to that name (in any Seam context), Seam instantiates the user component, and returns the resulting User entity bean instance to JSF after storing it in the Seam session context.
Doesn't the user variable get created before that, during the RenderResponse phase when the page is rendered for the first time?
