    Problem removing

    Jason Long Master

      I am gearing up for Seam 2.0, but I cannot remove SeamExceptionFilter
      or SeamRedirectFilter in web.xml

      Since Seam 1.2, you didn't need any declarations of SeamExceptionFilter
      or SeamRedirectFilter in web.xml, just a single declaration of SeamFilter.
      Make sure you've already made that change.


      from
      http://fisheye.jboss.com/browse/JBoss/jboss-seam/seam2migration.txt?r=MAIN

      I am currently using Seam 1.2.1 on JBoss 4.2.0. However, it did not work when I was on 4.0.4 either.

      If I change

      <filter>
       <filter-name>Seam Exception Filter</filter-name>
       <filter-class>org.jboss.seam.servlet.SeamExceptionFilter</filter-class>
       </filter>
       <filter>
       <filter-name>Seam Redirect Filter</filter-name>
       <filter-class>org.jboss.seam.servlet.SeamRedirectFilter</filter-class>
       </filter>
       <filter-mapping>
       <filter-name>Seam Exception Filter</filter-name>
       <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
       </filter-mapping>
       <filter-mapping>
       <filter-name>Seam Redirect Filter</filter-name>
       <url-pattern>*.xhtml</url-pattern>
       </filter-mapping>


      to

      <filter>
       <filter-name>Seam Filter</filter-name>
       <filter-class>org.jboss.seam.web.SeamFilter</filter-class>
       </filter>
      
       <filter-mapping>
       <filter-name>Seam Filter</filter-name>
       <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
       </filter-mapping>


      I get a following exception. It fails on

      [SeamFilter] Initializing filter: sddsddsdsdsds

      What is this?

          Looks like you've got some filter defined in your project called sddsddsdsdsds (that extends AbstractFilter)

            Thx. Pete.

            I had the following on a class. I did not realize Seam was registering it for me as it was not listed in my web.xml

            @Name("sddsddsdsdsds")
            @Interceptors(SeamInterceptor.class)
            public class HttpServletRequestTimerFilter implements Filter

              To All,
              I am trying to do a similar thing with a Filter, and was wondering what was causing the NullPointerException to be thrown in the SeamFilter?

              I am running JBoss 4.2.1, with Seam 1.2.1 and JSF 1.2, and get the exact same error.

              // Code Snippet from my filter.
              @Scope(ScopeType.APPLICATION)
              @Name("common.MembershipFilter")
              public class MembershipFilter implements Filter {

              How are filters generated in Seam? Why is the Null in the SeamFilter, and not in the Filter that is trying to be initialized? Any insight would be very helpful... Thanks.

              ~Greg

                Are you *trying* to use a Seam managed filter or register yours in web.xml? If you are trying to do a Seam managed filter, best to take a look at the filters seam registers.

                  Greg Kasi Newbie

                  I am trying to register our filters in the web.xml file of our application. Does the <filter-name> attribute in the web.xml have to match the value given to the @Name Annotation of the filter class?

                  Any thoughts on why the Null Pointer is thrown in the jboss SeamFilter class? From the stacktrace I get, there is no mention of my filter class at all.

                  Thanks for the help.

                    In Seam 1.2.1.GA if you mark a component @Name and implements Filter then it automatically gets installed through the SeamFilter (RTM). In later Seam this changed so that you must mark your filter @Filter for it to be installed as a SeamFilter. In short, if you want to install it through web.xml, don't use the @Name annotation.
