I am also looking for such pages. I once confused but later realized that in several places in th book default component scopes are described incorrectly.
I will try to put together a list of "known issues" on the book web site (also update the examples to Seam 1.3 ...). Thanks.
In the meanwhile, could you provide more details on the incorrect EL usage? The examples in the book do run correctly ...
i have not found the thread i mentioned above. I explicitly refer to chapter 11.1.3. When i try to pass the var variable(fan) of a datatable to a method, then a null value is passed.
This behaviour is consistent with seam docu(1.3.0Alpha)
Note: You can not pass objects as arguments! All that is passed is names,[...] If the arguments can not be resolved at that time (because hotel and user variables can not be found in any available context) the action method will be called with null arguments!
The var variable is not present in any scope, so null must be passed.

Please consider adding a warning about using <core:process-definitions> in a production environment.
See JBSEAM-1034 and the topic Why is core:process-definitions considered a development tool?.
Thanks for a great book,
