    NullPointerException when upgraded to Seam 2.0.0.GA

    Jonas Buechel Novice

      I get the following exception when running the application after upgrading from seam 2.0.0.BETA1 to 2.0.0.GA:

      So far i replaced/added the following files (corresponding to the Chapter 33. Dependencies of seam reference):
      war:
      jboss-seam-debug.jar
      jboss-seam-gen.jar
      jboss-seam-ioc.jar
      jboss-seam-mail.jar
      jboss-seam-pdf.jar
      jboss-seam-remoting.jar
      jboss-seam-ui.jar
      urlrewritefilter.jar
      jboss-el.jar

      ear:
      jboss-seam.jar
      antlr-runtime.jar
      core.jar
      drools-compiler.jar
      drools-core.jar
      janino.jar
      mvel14.jar


      As i'm quite lost any hint would be very appreciated!

      Btw, i can't yet upgrade to facelets 1.1.14 due to strange behavior in the view.. (currently 1.1.12)
