    Seam, Facelets, JSF and XML comments

    Steven Gollery Newbie

      I'm new to Seam, and trying to port (and enhance) a web app I had running previously using just Facelets and JSF. I keep running into problems that turn out to be due to parts of the XHTML file that are commented out, like this:

      <!--<h:commandButton type="submit" id="deleteTerritory"
      styleClass="standardButton"
      action="#{maintainLists.deleteTerritory}"
      value="Delete"
      />-->

      Without the comments, this works fine. But when it's commented out, I get this:

      javax.el.PropertyNotFoundException: Bean: com.myApplication.backingBeans.MaintainListsI$$EnhancerByCGLIB$$b402781f, property: deleteTerritory

      This is odd for two reasons: first the "property" (actually an action method) does exist in the backing bean, as evidenced by the fact that this works fine when I remove the comments. And second, since this markup is commented out, why is there even an attempt to access that method?

      Since this works fine until I put Seam in the mix, it seems that this effect must be Seam-related. Any ideas what's going on here?
