    Packaging question.

    David Owens Newbie

      So I successfully downloaded and ran the examples and everything worked fine. But for our projects, we want the entities to live in a separate project and package than the "action classes"/ejbs in their own jar, put a seam.properties in the root of that jar, and added it to my ear.

      My Ear looks like this:

      booking.ear
       booking.jar - The entities (Hotel, User, Booking)
       bookingserv.jar - The ejbs/services/actions (Other classes)
       booking.war - The web app
       jboss-seam.jar - Seam jar


      I updated META-INF/application.xml as follows:
      ...
       <module>
       <web>
       <web-uri>booking.war</web-uri>
       <context-root>/booking</context-root>
       </web>
       </module>
       <module>
       <ejb>booking.jar</ejb>
       </module>
       <module>
       <ejb>bookingserv.jar</ejb>
       </module>
       <module>
       <java>jboss-seam.jar</java>
       </module>
      ...


      It had deployment problems so I had to explicitly set 'unitName="Booking"' on all the @PersistenceContext tags in the project.

      Then it deployed fine, and the application comes up. But when I go to login, I get this error:
      ...
      Faces Servlet threw exception
      javax.faces.FacesException: Error calling action method of component with id _id2:_id14
      ...
      IllegalArgumentException: value found for In attribute has the wrong type: login

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!

          Okay, my bad. I had originally tried to put the "action classes" in the /war file in WEB-INF/classes, but that didn't work. So I made the new jar bookingserv.jar, but had not removed the classes from the war. So that got rid of the problem. And I'm back trying to figure out how to deploy the two seam parts seperately.

          Hopefully my mistake will help someone not make the same. :)
