You would be better off using 1.1.6 (or 1.1.7 when its released next week) - 1.0.0 is old now.
Thanks Petemuir for the reply.
But I don't see me and my team moving to Seam 1.1.7 for atleast one month as we don't have that much time to test our complete application with latest Seam.
I can think of a workaround as to put that variable in session context explicitly and then retrieving it back at the required place.
Can we have any other alternative better than this ?
