    Timo Schnölzer Newbie

      Hi folks,

      we are using the booking example of seam head and put it into MyEclipse Enterprise Application. When using the native build version of this example, the system is running fine.

      I went for hours now examinating any relevant difference, ot finding any thing. ths jars are the same. the naming is different.

      what is the

      <jboss-app>
      <loader-repository>
      seam.jboss.org:loader=NSDAutomotiveWeb
      </loader-repository>
      </jboss-app>

      for? what entry is expected for the loader???

      Thx for any input

      Timo

          Don't worry too much about jboss-app.xml, the app will work fine w/o it, actually. It's just doing scoped classloading. The string is an arbitrary string.

            I am getting the same error:

            Caused by: java.util.MissingResourceException: Can't find resource for bundle java.util.PropertyResourceBundle, key validator.length

            The booking example works, but my app can't find the resource. From what I can tell they are setup the same and hibernate-annotations.jar is in the lib directory. I get the same result even when I put the annotations jar in my ear.

            I have run out of ideas. Any thoughts?

              You need to provide a value for the message in the Annotation or the messages.properties.


              But even though i have done this, the validation doesn't seem to be working. It allows me to attempt to save invalid pojos. And I get a database error.

                Ok. So the validation is occuring. The @IfInvalid doesn't seem to be doing what I think it should. I can see in the stack trace that Hibernate knows it is invalid. But I get a stack trace instead of the page redisplayed.

                  Well, I "fixed" it by putting jsf validators in the UI. But was hoping not to have to. Actually, I was thinking it would be nice to have the Hibernate Tool generate the annotations (like it does @Column) for basic things it can infer from the db schema.

                  Anyway, I am using the Hibernate tools to generate the basic crud app, so I am not sure if it is generating the correct code to make @IfInvalid work. The generated code looks some what different than the example code.

                  I took the jsf validator back out and reran. Below is the stack trace. I couldn't see anything helpful other than that the domain is being validated by the persistance mechanism.

                    So two layers of validation occur here:

                    (1) UI validation, called when you have an action listener with @Invalid
                    (2) Database access validation, called before writing to the DB

                    (1) causes pretty faces messages
                    (2) causes stacktraces

                    You are seeing (2) happening here. You have not done any of (1).

                      I understand what is supposed to happen. I'm not sure why (1) is not happening. I don't see a @Invalid annotation.


                      The action method being called is defined as

                       @IfInvalid(outcome = Outcome.REDISPLAY)
                       public String update() {
                       refreshFinder();
                       return null;
                       }
                      


                      And was generated by Hibernate Tools.

                      Like I said, I understand what is supposed to happen (both UI and DB validation) but not why UI validation is not happening.

                      Oddly, it seems to be working fine on the create method. Just not the update.

                      Below is the create method:

                       @Begin(join = true)
                       @IfInvalid(outcome = Outcome.REDISPLAY)
                       public String create() {
                       if (entityManager.find(RegionGroup.class, instance.getRegiongroupid()) != null) {
                       FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().addMessage(
                       null,
                       new FacesMessage(resourceBundle
                       .getString("RegionGroup_regiongroupid")
                       + " " + resourceBundle.getString("AlreadyExists")));
                       return null;
                       }
                       entityManager.persist(instance);
                       isNew = false;
                       refreshFinder();
                       return "editRegionGroup";
                       }

                        Probably you need some @TransactionAttribute(NOT_SUPPORTED) annotations on some getter methods, to stop changes being flushed too early.
