    Using non-EJB annotated POJO as backing bean

    Brian Dillon Newbie

      Hi,

      I am trying use non-EJB annotated POJOs as my seam backing beans, but I when I access the object using

      <h:outputText value="#{FirstPageBB.name}"/>

      I get the following error;

      javax.servlet.ServletException: Cannot get value for expression '#{FirstPageBB.name}'
      javax.faces.webapp.FacesServlet.service(FacesServlet.java:152)

      My bean is annotated and declared like;

      @Scope(ScopeType.SESSION)
      @Name("FirstPageBB")
      public class FirstPageBB implements Serializable {

      Since the example/test I am working does not rely on the data being persisted I wanted to get this working without using EJB or JPA. Can POJOs be used as backing beans with seam or is this limited to Entitys (either EJB or POJOs) ?

      Thanks,

      Brian
