    Can action called from button avoid committing transaction?

    steve tynor Novice

      Seam 1.2.1-GA, JBoss AS 4.2.1, Hibernate 3.2.5ga

      I wish to put a button on a form that adds an item to a list being displayed/edited in a dataTable. The new item is not completely initialized -- until the user types in some values in the table columns, it's not ready for persisting.

      On my MyHome class, I have a function

      public void addItem() {
       getInstance().myList().add(new SomeEntity());
      }
      


      The problem is that after calling addItem, something is deciding to commit the new SomeEntity to the database. I don't want it to try to persist until I explicitly call em.persist() or em.update(). How can I stop it from persisting the object?

      I've tried several types of button markup:

      <s:button action="#{myHome.addItem}" ...
      <h:command action="#{myHome.addItem}" ...
      <h:commandButton immediate="true"action="#{myHome.addItem}" ...
      


      ... and no matter what I do, hibernate is deciding to commit a transaction when I call through the button. Help!

      The stack in case that helps:
