    Trouble calling Stateless Bean

    Samuel Mendenhall Apprentice

      I have a page to show the groups in my system. There are a series of links to allow the user to modify the group. I am having trouble implementing the first of those links where the user clicks to edit the group itself.

      <h:commandLink value="Edit Information" action="#{editGroup.update}">
       <f:param name="groupId" value="#{groupUsers.group.groupId}"/>

      public class EditGroup implements IEditGroup {
       private Long groupId;
       private Log log;
       private EntityManager em;
       @In(create=false) @Out
       Group group;
       public String update() {
       //Verify groupId is set
       if(groupId == null || groupId.equals("")){return null;}
       Map<String, Object> parameters = new HashMap<String, Object>();
       log.info("\n\nFinding Group with groupId: " + groupId + "\n\n");
       Query query = em.createQuery("from Group group where group.groupId = :groupId");
       parameters.put("groupId", groupId);
       for (Entry <String, Object> param : parameters.entrySet()) {
       query.setParameter( param.getKey(), param.getValue() );
       log.info("Querying for group");
       Group attachedGroup = (Group) query.getSingleResult();
       log.info("Found group object: " + group);
       if(group == null) {
       group = attachedGroup;
       } else {
       log.info("group was not null, attempting to update the attached group");
       return "editGroup";

      The error when I click on the link is as follows:
      WARNING: Component _id13 just got an automatic id, because there was no id assigned yet. If this component was created dynamically (i.e. not by a JSP tag) you should assign it an explicit static id or assign it the id you get from the createUniqueId from the current UIViewRoot component right after creation!

      I'm probably doing my @Stateless bean completely against convention, but all I want is to load the group on demand and update on demand, I dont' think it needs to be statefull.

      I thought I could just create a @Stateless bean and invoke it from anywhere, but I must be missing something, help is needed with that *something*.
