    @Future being ignored

    Tony Herstell Master

      I am not having the @Future being honoured.
      Is this a valid annotation and is there anything wrong with this:

       public Date getStartDate() {
       return startDate;

          @CreditCardNumber is also not even known in Seam.

          Are all the Hibernate validations etc. supported?

          Can we drop in a new jar to catch up?

            It's probably because you did set the input field's required attribute to true.

            You need required="true" in your jsf view component too.

                This is my .xhtml

                <h:inputText id="launchDate" value="#{launchDateStepController.workingObject.startDate}" required="true" title="#{messages.hint_launch_date}">
                 <s:convertDateTime pattern="dd/MM/yyyy" />
                <s:selectDate for="launchDate" startYear="2007" dateFormat="dd/MM/yyyy">
                 <h:graphicImage url="#{basePath}/images/datepicker.gif" style="margin-left:5px;cursor:pointer" />

                Have i missed summat?

                  Do you have an <s:validate> tag around your control, or an <s:validateAll> tag around multiple controls?

                  From the reference guide :

                  The only thing here that is specific to Seam is the <s:validateAll> tag. This JSF component tells JSF to validate
                  all the contained input fields against the Hibernate Validator annotations specified on the entity bean.

                    Yes, actually that's correct I did disable my Validate all (I forgot!!).

                    HOWEVER if I put it back on I get:

                    SEVERE: Error Rendering View[/pages/advertisingCampaign/wizard.xhtml]

                    I have a "mother of all pages" wizard..
                    it has a side bar that has 8 steps on it.
                    I allow the user to go to any step at any time and jump in between them.
                    This means I have end up pulling in over 27 .xhtml files for the page!! and it has two nested templates to boot!


                    This bit works fine without validateAll

                    <td align="left">
                     <h:selectOneRadio id="advertType" required="true"
                     value="#{adTypeStepController.workingObject.type}" layout="pageDirection">
                     <s:selectItems value="#{adTypeStepController.workingObject.advertTypes}"
                     var="advertType" label="#{messages[advertType.label]}" />
                     <s:convertEnum />

                    and fails with validateAll turned on.


                    same code works elsewhere... so its a nasty bug hunt.

                    Sorry for wasting your time.

                      The AdvertType is retreived from this

                       public enum AdvertType {
                       Lineage ("label_ad_type_lineage"),
                       BannerAd ("label_ad_type_banner_ad");
                       private final String label;
                       AdvertType(String label) {
                       this.label = label;
                       public String getLabel() { return label; }

                        I haven't really gotten into JSF selectors and enums so I don't have a clue.

                        Ye gads man, 27 pages in one. How about using a nice page flow and individual pages and save yourself some sanity (maybe)

                          I wish....

                          I still have lots of other "simple" pages, but this was the mother of all pages... what really slows it down is that all the .xhtml, even the stuff shielded by s:fragment still gets elaborated... so had to set storage to server !!!

                          It really DID start as a simple page!

                          NOTE TO SELF... just cus you can "include" in facelets... don't!

                          Workround for above problem was to add validate to EVERY field apart from the field that causes the problem!

                          I will come back to it at some point... but deadlines are tight!
