    selectManyListbox executePhase NullPointerException

    Przemyslaw Rudzki Newbie

      Hi,

      I have simple model:

      class Book {
       @ManyToMany //unidirectional
       private List<DictionaryEntry> dictionaryEntryList;
      }


      In the JSF it is presented as:

      <h:selectManyListbox id="select2Status" value="#{bookHome.instance.dictionaryEntryList}" required="false">
       <s:convertEntity />
       <s:selectItems value="#{dictionaryEntryList.resultList}" var="item" label="#{item.value}" noSelectionLabel="---------" />
      </h:selectManyListbox>


      1. When I create entity with some elements selected everything works fine.
      2. When I edit the selection and update everything works great.
      3. The problem occurs when I deselect all the items and try to do an update. I get then:
