    Jboss Seam+Facelet!

    Venkatesa Prasannaa Selvaraj Newbie

      Hi,

      I'm creating a reference application for a project with Jboss Seam. I'm using Seam2.0 beta & Glassfish server 9.1. I'm using Netbeans IDE5.5.1.
      I'd created a sample application with Jboss Seam, JSF & EJB3.0 & it works fine. But I need to render Facelet & Ajax4Jsf support to my application. I searched for support documents, but nothing worked. When I add facelet & Seam, I always get,

      WebModule[/SVPSeam-war]PWC1275: Exception sending context initialized event to listener instance of class org.jboss.seam.servlet.SeamListener
      java.lang.NullPointerException
      at org.jboss.seam.contexts.ServletLifecycle.endInitialization(ServletLifecycle.java:100)............


      error.
      Kindly provide me exact procedure for creating Jboss Seam Application with Facelet.

      My faces-config.xml looks like this,

      <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>

      <!-- =========== FULL CONFIGURATION FILE ================================== -->

      <faces-config version="1.2"

          Do you have the required jars deployed properly? Your best bet is to use seam-gen or one of the examples and then compare the exploded ear to the one you are generating.

          I'm using the same configuration you are

          "I'm using Seam2.0 beta & Glassfish server 9.1. I'm using Netbeans IDE5.5.1. "

          and it took a bit of tweaking to get it to work properly.

            Hi Samdoyle,

            Thanks for ur prompt reply.....
            But I'm yet to crack it down......

            I'd successfully created & deployed a Jboss seam app with Jsf+EJB3.0.

            But when it comes to implementing facelet framework into the abovesaid I'm not getting the app deployed.

            I'd used nbfaceletssupport-0-5 for rendering Facelet dev support into NB5.5.1 IDE....
            Here it adds the facelets library into war. I've done the same config to this app as before, but in vain.

            Could U tell me exactly the libs to add to EJB & WAR modules & the config changes into web.xml & faces-config.xml?

            Since u'd already succeeded in this, u cud really help me out with this.....

            Thanks,
            Venkates

              Samuel Doyle Apprentice

              In NB I created a new Enterprise Application.

              Under the EJB component's configuration files I created an ejb-jar.xml file from what I had noticed in some of the examples. Here is the contents.

              <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
              <ejb-jar version="3.0" xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/ejb-jar_3_0.xsd">
              
               <interceptors>
               <interceptor>
               <interceptor-class>org.jboss.seam.ejb.SeamInterceptor</interceptor-class>
               </interceptor>
               </interceptors>
              
               <assembly-descriptor>
               <interceptor-binding>
               <ejb-name>*</ejb-name>
               <interceptor-class>org.jboss.seam.ejb.SeamInterceptor</interceptor-class>
               </interceptor-binding>
               </assembly-descriptor>
              
              </ejb-jar>
              


              The empty seam.properties file also goes here to.

              For building the ejb portion of the application I have the following required libs. that is set in the properties section of that project.

              commons-beansutils-1.7.0.jar
              commons-digester-1.6.jar
              hibernate-all.jar
              jboss-archive-browsing.jar
              jboss-common.jar
              jboss-seam.jar
              jpm-jpdl.jar
              thirdparty-all.jar
              


              I don't know if they are all needed or not. I was just adding and removing libs at one point trying to get it to work. The hibernate stuff I know gives you the validators and if you want to use Hibernate for your persistence provider. The commons-*.jar and jboss-seam.jar are def. needed.

              For the war project I have added the components.xml and pages.xml to the WEB-INF section. You should also see the faces-config.xml there to.

              For the libs for the war project I have the following. Some of them you might need such if you are using richfaces or remoting for instance.

              ajax4jsf-1.1.1.jar
              jboss-cache-jdk50.jar
              jboss-el.jar
              jboss-seam-debug.jar
              jboss-seam-remoting.jar
              jboss-seam-ui.jar
              richfaces-3.0.1.jar
              
              And of course the facelets.jar
              


              As I mentioned your best bet is probably to start with a seam-gen application. Then create a new Enterprise Application in NB. Take the seam generated files I mentioned previously and place them in those locations I mentioned. Then configure both the ejb and war projects with those required jars I mentioned. If you can get that up and running you are on your way.

              Good Luck

              S.D.

                Oh one more thing I have been building on the latest CVS of Seam 2.0 not the package you download.

                  And one more very important thing.

                  The jndi-pattern that you might see in the examples or seam-gen applications need to be changed to.

                  java:comp/env/<your ear name>/#{ejbName}/local
                  


                  The JEE5 examples have this set properly.

                    Hi Sam,

                    Thanks for the reply. Now I managed to get rid of that error. But, after deploying the app, when I try to load the .xhtml file from the index page, I get the following error.

                    /template-client.xhtml not found at jndi:/server/SVPSeam-war/template-client.xhtml


                    I have not used the seam-gen app. I'm trying to setup development framework with Jboss-seam.jar & also have facelet incorporated. Netbeans IDE 5.5.1 does support facelet framework. I have added the required jars.
                    This jsf-facelets.jar, I have added in .war section. But still the app says the jar is not found. And when I trace the path C:\Program%20Files\glassfish-v2-b53\domains\domain1\applications\j2ee-apps\SVPSeam\jsf-facelets.jar (The system cannot find the path specified) - the jar is present. Also I notice a peculiar thing. With Sun Java App server 9.1(Glassfishv53) if application.xml is present, the application doesn't deploy.

                    Please throw some insight/insinuation to the above problem as I'm moving nowhere with that.

                    Thanks,
                    Venkates
