    RequestParameter problem

    Mirko Adari Novice

      Okay, it all works fine if I have required get parameter set.
      But what if I don`t? If user enters that page directly without any parameters.
      Then I get error: ould not set field value: cateditor.catid
      And I do not want user to visit page while not in long-running conversation.
      Unfortune @Conversational does not get started, because this error happens.
      Any design patterns to overcome this issue?

      Please help me, it`s needed hurry...

            Sorry, no-one can help because it's _your_ explanation which is insufficient.

               <div class="separator"></div>

              and this bean:

              package ee.digizone.ejb;
              import java.io.Serializable;
              import java.util.List;

              import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Begin;

              import org.jboss.logging.Logger;
              public class CategoryEditorBean implements CategoryEditor,Serializable {
               EntityManager em;
               private Category category;
               Logger logger = Logger.getLogger(CategoryEditorBean.class);
               int catid;
               Map<String,Category> categoryMap;
               List<Category> categories;
               public void loadData() {
               categories = em.createQuery("from Category c")
               .setHint("org.hibernate.cacheable", true)
               Map<String,Category> results = new TreeMap<String,Category>();
               for (Category category: categories) {
               categoryMap = results;
               public void create() {
               public void save() {
               public void selectCreate() {
               category = new Category();
               public void selectModify() {
               category = em.find(Category.class,catid);
               public String delete() {
               category = em.find(Category.class,catid);
               return null;
               public Map<String,Category> getCategories() {
               return categoryMap;
               public Category getCategory() {
               return this.category;
               @Destroy @Remove
               public void destroy() {}

              What I wan`t is that when user hits page ccategory.jsf when no conversation is active ,he would be directed to categorys page. Currently it just gaves me error: could not set cateditor.catid.

              Hope this one is better, I know five languages, but english is not in them... so be merciful to me.

                It gives me trouble every time when i call bean which has requestparameter, but request does not have that parameter.
                Giving errors and not letting me work normally. There most definitely is something that im designing wrong...

                  A missing request parameter is a null value. If you want to allow null values, you need to use a non-primitive type like Integer instead of int.

                    Oh my god, thank you. But how come does not entry.jsf on blog example does not break application if I make a request with not specifying blogEntryID parameter?

                      It is a String, so the value can be null.

                        yeah, noticed it. Anyway thank you much. You should note it in manual I think... My logic atleast tells that null = value of 0 or smth.

                          I have never met any programming language where null==0. Certainly not Java.
