    Unable to stop conversation propagation for <s:link action=?

    cdanielw Newbie

      An <s:link/>, where the navigation is defined by the action attribute, propagates the conversation event though the propagation attribute is set to none, a <s:conversationPropagation propagation="none"/> is added to the tag body or a <f:param name="conversationPropagation" value="none"/> is added to the tag body.

      I opened an issue for this (http://jira.jboss.com/jira/browse/JBSEAM-1162?page=all), but it was closed. Since this is not a bug, the only way I can see it is that the documentation fails to mention this limitation. Am I missing something obvious?

      Below is an extended test case, which should cover most cases.

      1) Pointing your browser to test1 begins (or joins) a conversation.

      2) Clicking on one of the links navigates to test2, hopefully without propagating the conversation. Whether the conversation was propagated or not is what we actually want to test

      3) In test2, clicking on the link starts a new conversation and navigates back to test1. Starting the new conversation will fail if we propagated the conversation from test1.

      The links colored red propagates the conversation, while the green ones don?t. All <s:link action=?xxx?/> propagates the conversation. <s:link view=?xxx?/> and <h:commandLink/> doesn?t.
