    trouble with conversations

    Troy Tarrrant Newbie

      Hi,

      Im new to seam and liking what i see, however I'm having real trouble with conversations.

      I set my class up to be in conversation scope (this class will feed the UI field info that I want to work with over several pages.)

      @Name("cardFields")
      @Scope(ScopeType.CONVERSATION)
      public class CardFields implements Serializable {
      ...

      And then set it to start a conversation in pages.xml
      <page view-id="/addcard.xhtml" action="#{conversation.begin}">

      This worked fine but I noticed that if I continually refreshed the addCard page then another conversation would get started (I could see this by using the debug page). When I thought about it this was expected as everytime a new page refresh happened seam would start another conversation because of the action in pages.xml.

      I wanted more control, so I changed pages.xml to the following
      <page view-id="/addcard.xhtml">
      <begin-conversation join="true" />
      ...
      thinking that only 1 conversation would happen.
      when i deployed this after restarting the server the same thing happend, on a refresh more conversations started happening even tho pages.xml explictly says join=true.

      Surley this can't be right? just to be doubly sure, I tried it with join=false but the same thing happened.

      Not convinced that I'd got it right I fired up the sample app called numberguess and sure enough the same thing was happening ?

      Is this a bug or have I missed something ? BTW where is the docu for pages.xml for running in navigation rules and not page flow mode ?

      Thanks
