Can i bind jsf widget to a session bean properity ? that would solve the problem... but seems quite nasty :/
Of course and it's absolutely normal.
OK so that leaves me with another question.
Suppose i havea form - i bind its values to a session bean then i filter the ones im really intrested in and distribute the data between the Entity beans ... is this a good practice ?
Since i bind values to session bean there's no automatic creation of Entity beans - i need to call new to create antites - and in that case - when do the validation occurs ?
You need to look at a few Seam tutorials and example applications...
wich ones in particular ? because in those mentioned in tutorial form values are bound to entity beans directly. I dont really know, when binding directly is a better idea than using session bean to hold data.
