    Challenge: Simple Example Adding Records With Lookup Dropdow

    johnurban Newbie

      I have been unsuccessful in my search to find a seam example on how to create a screen that does the following:

      1. create a table A in your favorite DB. Table A has a foreign key B Id that represents a record in table B.

      A - people

      id
      name
      city
      state
      b_id

      2. create a table B in your favorite DB.

      B - groups

      id
      group
      desc
      date_added

      3. create a screen using seam that allows you go add a record A.
      4. add to this screen a dropdown that allows the user to select a value that represents a record B-group. So now the record gets added with the group value that was selected via the dropdown

      How is this done is seam?

          Have you tried the example in my selectitems code (http://jroller.com/page/pmuir?entry=selectitems_revisited). It contains both a select many and select one drop down that will end up being represented as youy suggest.

          If you have problems getting the example running (follow the readme) let me know. There are a couple of bugs in it which I plan to fix later today.

            Thanks petemuir. I think you've got me on the right track now. Getting that old null exception again. I've debuged the code and I have exactly 3 rooms in my lists. The count says 3.

              Pete Muir Master

              I'm still concerned about personEditor having a SESSION scope [1]. I would suggest trying a really simple stateless session bean that just returns all the rooms in your data:

              ...
              @SelectItems(label="description")
              List<Room> allRooms;
              
              @Factory("allRooms")
              void getRoomList() {
               allRooms = entityManager.createQuery("select room from Room room").getResultList();
              }
              ...


              and see if you can get that displaying on your JSF page. Then work up from there.

              In general I would suggest always using much simpler jsf/beans whilst debugging something like this and working up to a complex setup - something else could be causing the problem but be hidden.

              The example is probably a good place to start - the only reason the backing bean is conversational is to show state being saved, the interesting stuff (@SelectItems) could easily be stateless.

                Thanks.

                Looks like my decision to add to the already generated code was a bad idea. I like your idea of simplifying. So that brings me to a design question:

                In this case should I create a new SLSB to persist the new person record rather than the generated PersonEditorBen(SFSB)?

                If I do create a new SLSB, can I make it do the room lookup, extract the data from jsp and add the record to the person table. Or, does this SLSB need be to specifically for the room lookup?

                If so, do I always need to user SLSB when doing fancy dropdown lookups on tables?

                In Seam what are the best guidelines for determining when/when not to use SLSB/SFSB?

                  This is an interesting question. I think the answer depends on style/what you are doing.

                  I'm increasingly using the pattern of a stateful component to manage the flow and a stateless 'service' bean to do the rest of the work. I use bijection to pass any object required (so far only entities) between them.

                  The advantage of this approach I find is that, firstly, you seperate workflow logic from 'helper' methods resulting in clearer code (for example, deleting a user vs. reseting the password), secondly, it makes the 'helper' methods resuable (e.g. a nationality dropdown might be used in various places in your ui, so you want its content to be generated in a stateless fashion).

                  The disadvantage is complexity - and I am developing a complex workflow involving jbpm.

                  So, what I would do is create a 'roomService' bean which contains any non-workflow-related methods for rooms (e.g. drop down lists, generating access codes), and a 'roomCRUD' bean that contains the workflow methods. That doesn't mean its the best approach but it works well for me and avoids a lot of the concurrent access problems to stateful beans (though I believe the new seam fixes this).

                    I was able to get the example working after closely following your example Mr. Muir. Thank you.

                    In your example you have Client and ClientType POJO's. My next hurdle is getting the Client object to persist from a JSF. Is there an example already out there showing how to persist an object that has a dropdown/lookup, reference as an @ManyToOne?

                    My JSF seems to pass validation, however I keep getting

                    "unable to access entity manager"

                    as a return message in my JSF. No exceptions come up the stack trace and the action event never gets called. So, some magic is happening between jsf submit and RoomServiceBean.

                    JSF

                      Yes it is :) Check you've configured org.jboss.seam.selectitems.SelectItemsPersistenceConfig -> persistenceUnitJndiName in components.xml - it should be set the same as org.jboss.seam.core.ManagedPersistenceContext -> persistenceUnitJndiName

                          I should also say, that the rooms and organization lookups work fine using the EntityManager from inside RoomServiceBean. But it appears that the the jsf is trying to access the EntityManager from somewhere other than than RoomServiceBean, because I get no System.out messages once I click on the roomService.addNewPerson button.

                              Thank you for the extra eyes. I'm beginning to wish I had NOT started w/ the hibernate generated code for this particular app. Configuration seems to be a big part of this.

                              I got past the entitymanager issue, now I'm stuck with the exact same code giving me a Validation error on the jsp. My question:

                              How do I figure out what is NOT getting validated?

                                Wow, I get to answer my own question for a change:

                                The validation error was resolved when I read the example by Mr. Muir. I had to override the equals method:

                                 @Override
                                 public boolean equals(Object obj) {
                                 if (!(obj != null && obj instanceof Room))
                                 return false;
                                 Room rm = (Room) obj;
                                
                                 if (this.id.equals(rm.id))
                                 return true;
                                
                                 return false;
                                 }
                                


                                The next problem I got I fixed reading another forum post.. changing the entityManager.persist to entitymanager.merge

                                I GOT THE Record to ADD!!

                                  I#ve got the same problem. The real differences between your and my version is the usage of the EntityConverter and the @SelectItems.

                                  Could you please tell me what you did to get it working?

                                  Do I have to use @SelectItems and/or the EntityConverter or does it also work with a "pure" Seam?

                                    Well there are really two approaches:

                                    1) Traditional JSF - write a converter and outject a List - this is described on the wiki http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=SelectItems

                                    2) Use the SeamSelectItems package - an old version of which is being discussed here
