    help needed with basic seam login screen

    Sylvia Trommer Newbie

      I have been trying to create a login screen for an application that was created with the reverse engineering tool. With the help of those created files and the login files of the seam-booking example, I created the following files (see below).
      However, when I run the application and hit the login button, nothing happens, instead, next to the inputs, an error message is shown:
      "login_userName": Error during model data update.
      "login_password": Error during model data update.

      There are no error messages in the server log.

      any ideas what we are doing wrong? do we need to edit any other configuration files in the project? it is driving us crazy and any help would greatly been appreciated.
