Help with examples

Noah White Newbie

I'm new to Seam and I am working through the examples. I have the booking demo working in my environment:

J2EE5 SDK w/GlassFish

I tried to get the remoting progressbar example working in this environment using the jee5/booking example for glassfish as my reference point for configuration and required jars. However, the best I have gotten is to render the page sans button so it appears to me that the tags <h:> etc in progressbar.xhtml are not being processed. This leads me to believe its a faces configuration issue but I'm stumped because things like pretty much as they do in that regard to the working jee5 example I have. Any thoughts on where to poke further?

    I should have noted that these are the examples included in the 2.0.0-Beta1 SEAM package.

    I noticed the faces-config.xml file was empty so following the documentation I added


    It appears that the phase listener is triggering the following error on deployment:

    No, read the seam2migration.txt file. It says you do not need those elements.

    We have not updated the official docs for Seam2.

    Thanks! That was the bread crumb I needed. It's working now once I changed the faces-config.xml to contain the following:
