    EntityConverter documentation flaw

    Tomislav Jakopec Novice

      After 2 hours of wondering what I did wrong, error was in documentation.
      I was trying to use <s:convertEntity /> and get null pointer exception all the time.

      Bottom of line is

      in seam documentation
      http://docs.jboss.com/seam/2.0.0.B1/reference/en/html_single/
      in section <s:convertEntity />
      says

      If your Managed Persistence Context isn't called entityManager, then you need to set it in components.xml: (my case)

      <component name="org.jboss.seam.ui.entityConverter">
       <property name="entityManager">#{em}</property>
      </component>
      

      Problem was solved when I put (big E instead of small e)
      <component name="org.jboss.seam.ui.EntityConverter">
       <property name="entityManager">#{em}</property>
      </component>
      

      Should documentation change or should code change?
