    Pageflow problem using jBPM3.1.1

    Nathan Slippen Newbie

      Before upgrading to JBoss 4.0.4 CR2 and Seam CR2, our pageflow on an @Begin was working properly and on page transitioned to another with the appropriate HTML being displayed. Now that we have upgraded, this Pageflow is not working and throwing exceptions. The root cause is a NullPointerException. It appears that this is the problematic area in the implementation.

      Contexts.getPageContext().set( PAGEFLOW_NODE_NAME, pageflow.getNode().getName() );

      Here is the StackTrace:


      13:28:05,151 ERROR [HtmlMessageRendererBase] Could not render Message. Unable to find component 'input' (calling findComponent on component 'form:_id22'). If the provided id was correct, wrap the message and its component into an h:panelGroup or h:panelGrid.

      Is anyone having similar issues and is there a fix, or are we missing something ?

      Prior to upgrading Seam, jBPM and jBoss, we had the examples working.

      Also, we did add the jbpm.cfg.xml file to our deployment, after upgrading.
