    Configuring Seam 1.2.1GA for s:uploadFile

    Reuben Helms Newbie

      Hi all

      Having all sorts of problems trying to configure for file uploads using s:uploadFile.

      Using Seam 1.2.1 GA and JBoss 4.0.5GA.

      My original function was non trivial, so I rigged up a simple example using code found around this this forum. Unfortunately, it still doesnt quite work.

      When I run it debug, and suspend in reset(), I can see in the stack that the file has been uploaded into the request, but just hasnt been bound to the backing bean. In my non trivial example, I had a regular h:inputField that was getting bound to the backing bean, even though the file wasnt. I've also tried with InputStream and byte[], but no joy on either.

      Here is the web page:

      Here is the backing bean interface

      @Local

      I strong suspect something whacky in the config, since the code was taken from this site for ppl that is actually worked for.

      I'm not sure if there are any other config files that are relevant.

      Any obvious faults pointed out would be much appreciated.

          Well, turns out it was something in the config.

          First problem, though not a direct cause, was the presence of two <filter-mapping> entries for the MyFacesExtensionsFilter.

          Chopped the duplicate entry out, but no dice.

          Next step was to chop the MyFacesExtensionsFilter filter out altogether.

          At last, success! Which means the doco really is serious about not recommending Tomahawk. Now I just have to see about using Trinidad, to replace the few Tomahawk components that I use.
