    Seam's Manager class bug?

    John Newbie

      Hello,

      I'm using Seam 1.1GA and have observed a bug in the Manager class when its redirect method tries to redirect a long running conversation bookmarked URL or by selecting from the browser's URL location dropdown. Here is the scenario using this URL for sample:

      http://localhost:8080/my-seam-app/editCustomer.jsf?cid=7&clr=true

      The application uses Servlet filter to enforce user to come to a common login page. if there is no active session. Please note that this servlet filter does not interact with Seam in anyway. When the response.redirect set the login URL, successfully called the FilterChain.doFilter, then suddenly the org.jboss.seam.core.manager instance captured the above URL then called its redirect that caused the IllegalStateException because the context.getApplication() is null. Please note that it only occurs for the long running conversation. If I set the following property to blank in the components.xml, everything works as expected.



      I also use the noConversationViewId in the component.xml too but won't be executed because the JSF phaseId is different in this case.

      Also look at this threat for more info => http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=98098

      Has anyone else experienced this? Is it a bug? Any workaround for this?

      Appreciates,

      John
