As a learning/debug helper I am trying to catch events when components are stored/removed from any context. org.jboss.seam.preSetVariable and the like do pretty much what I am looking for, but I would like to set this in a more coarse grained manner. As it is now, to use this I need to create a method for each event and for each variable I want to catch an event on. I would like to declare the components I want to catch events on and receive the events on the same listener.
I could programatically add the observer when I see a component I am interested in but when the method is called I will not know which component it is for as there is no parameter passed to these methods.
As an example if I have the following:
@Name( "personAction" )
@Scope( ScopeType=PAGE )
public class PersonAction implements Serializable
@In( scope=ScopeType.SESSION )
If somehow, in a yet determined way, I configure this component as an Observer for my event. I would like notification of when "personAction" and "person" have been added to context and removed from context and which context that is.
I am not sure if there is already a means to do this, so any insight is appreciated.
