Value is not Valid with <s:entityConverter and equals and ha

Franck MARTIN Newbie


After submitting a form for saving a "Dossier", I'm getting the jsf validation error "value is not valid" for the value "Paiement" selected from a dropdown list .

For that dropdown list i used the seam entity converter.

i overrid the methods equals and hashcode for the entity (Paiement) that is to be displayed in the dropdownlist.

i checked the html generated by seam for the dropdownlist and the values are correct. they match the primary key (Paiement.id)

Any idea of what's going wrong? Below i copied some code to make it clearer.


public class Dossiers implements java.io.Serializable {

 private Integer dosId;

 private Paiement paiement;

 @ManyToOne(fetch = FetchType.LAZY)
 @JoinColumn(name = "pai_id", nullable = false)
 public Paiement getPaiement() {
 return this.paiement;

 public void setPaiement(Paiement paiement) {
 this.paiement = paiement;

Paiement :
 public boolean equals(Object obj) {
 if (!(obj != null && obj instanceof Paiement))
 return false;
 Paiement ct = (Paiement) obj;
 if (paiId.equals(ct.paiId))
 return true;
 return false;

 public int hashCode() {
 return paiId==null ? 0 : paiId.hashCode();

the view
<h:selectOneMenu value="#{dossier.paiement}" id="paiement" layout="pageDirection" styleClass="radio" required="true" >
 <s:selectItems value="#{referential.listePaiements}" var="paiement" label="#{paiement.libelles[langUser].libLib}"/>
