    Help: problem with EntityHome

    Qing Zheng Newbie

      Hi,

      I am having problem using EntityHome. I have an entity class Foo, follow the Seam documentation in Section 10.2 I define a FooHome class

      public FooHome extends EntityHome<Foo> {
      }
      


      First I get null pointer exception because getEntityManager() returns null. I solve this problem by injecting an entity manager. Now when I call persist() I get the following exception:
      java.lang.NullPointerException

      For debugging purpose, I redefined persist method in FooHome and cut and paste the code from EntityHome.persist. The null pointer exception is caused by PersistenceProvide.instance() returns null. Am I missing something? I thought when I use EntityHome I don't need to anything in the XML configuration file.

      Thanks in advance.
