    JavaAssist fails to create proxy

    Sander Mak Newbie

      My component:

      package org.blog.weblayer.session;
      import org.jboss.seam.ScopeType;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Scope;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.AutoCreate;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Name;
      @Name("Sessiontag_st") @AutoCreate @Scope(ScopeType.SESSION) public class Var0 implements java.io.Serializable, weblayer.SessionVar<org.blog.domainmodel.Tag>
       org.blog.domainmodel.Tag var = new org.blog.domainmodel.Tag();
       public void setVar(org.blog.domainmodel.Tag var)
       this.var = var;
       public org.blog.domainmodel.Tag getVar()
       return var;

      The interface:

      package weblayer;
      public interface SessionVar<T> {
       public T getVar();
       public void setVar(T t);

      The lookup in another component:

      If I get rid of the interface on the session scoped component and cast to Var0 directly, everything works dandy... So, why can't my Seam component implement an interface?

      (offtopic: originally I wanted to make Var0 parameterized, i.e. Var, assigning it different roles for each session var so that I do not need to write a specialization for each type I have, implementing a common generic interface. However, I really need the instantiation of the member field, which cannot be done by virtue of Java's type erasure scheme for generics)
