    JBoss Seam, a great product that doesn't work :(

    Mihai Lazar Newbie

      Well, after 3 days of frustration, I finnaly decided to ask help on your forum.

      I'm pretty sure that this has been already discussed somewhere else but here it goes :).

      I've run the seam generator tool. Started Jboss AS 4.2.0 GA. Everything was fine. Than I tried to write the registration example over it.

      Only wrote a small page for the registration... and the RegistrationAction that the tutorial was providing.

      And here everything that could go wrong went :((

      The debug page keeps showing up, that's when JBoss AS doesn't complain about the deployer not beeing able to deploy stuff.

      Can anybody provide some hints on how to make new actions work ?

      Tried seam genereate-entities and after a while I succeeded to run it ( don't ask me how cause I :-?? have no clue as to how it finally worked )

      I'm connecting to a mysql on local host if that helps anything.

      Basically I want to write an application in JBOSS SEAM starting from the skeleton provided by seam gen. I'm sure somebody could provide a tutorial.

      Just In Case :
      http://www.intelligentedu.com/blogs/post/best_new_training_sites/3676/15-best-jboss-seam-tutorials

      I read those things none of it when right ? Do you remember your Seam newbie days ? Can somebody tell me how they managed to get it to work?

      10x in advanced. Maybe someone will take pitty on me.. so I can get other stupid questions out :D after I make the base stuff work.

          I must say, Seam is not easy to get started with. I have been using it for a year and I'm still figuring things out. It's great when you get it going, but until you have some experience with it it can be very frustrating to figure out, "why is this not working."

          When I'm stuck with debugging something like what you have, what I do is I take a known-working application, and I incrementally transform the known-working app into the app you are trying to get working. That is tedious but it will find the problem.

            Start with Eclipse Europa J2EE version and add JBoss Tools 2, it has wizards for a simple project you can then start fiddling around with.

            Seam is an evolution along a long line of web development frameworks and ideas. If you are new to this stuff it can probably feel like trying to drink from a fire hose but that doesn't mean that the product itself "doesn't work".

              Agreed with above.

              For those of us coming from a more simple model (i.e. basic Struts, or even just plain Java development), having to deal with all the things Seam pulls together is a pretty tough start.

              I've been playing with it for a week and am just now starting to get the hang of what's going... or at least so I think.

              Still, when you look at what you're saving by not having to use each component individually, and all the "plumbing code" you are spared, it's tough to go back.

              Big bonus in that, being an application stack instead of a web framework, it's not as likely to go obsolete any time soon.

                I'll see what I can help you with.

                Could you post some more details on the issues you are seeing?

                Did you get the basic seam-gen app working - but just adding on failed?

                Is it a WAR deployment or an EAR deployment?

                Have you tried a diff with the registration example - some times you might be missing a attribute or a simple typo?

                  Wow, thanks a lot for the prompt reply :).

                  I had RHDS RC1 and eclipse jee with jboss tools.. What I'm doing is this. I'm making a Seam Web Project with JBoss Seam 2.0.0.GA on JBoss AS 4.2.0.GA

                  The template works fine. When I access Generate Entities from the tool i get a n error saying something about ejb3deployer not beeing initialized.

                  Because of the errors I tried going back to the command line. The template worked fine.

                  Anyway.. I'm now doing JBoss AS 4.2.0.GA with JBoss Seam 1.2.1.GA looks like it works now. :-??

                  Also, what is that about Seam 2.0 being a technology preview ? Could that be the cause of the errors I get with deployment?

                  I'm pretty sure that when I was writting by hand I left out some configurations.

                  In conclusion it seems to be working for now. With Jboss Seam 1.2.1

                  Compared with Stripes, Seam still takes to much out of me, although if the facts on paper are right it will be worth it, at least that I'm hoping for.

                  Also found http://in.relation.to/Bloggers/Everyone/Tag/Seam, and it provided with some help.


                  If you know why I get that ejb3deployer error, or the most recent one
                  ERROR [SeamLoginModule] Error invoking login method
                  javax.el.PropertyNotFoundException: Target Unreachable, identifier 'authenticator' resolved to null

                  In the meanwhile I'll be playing with what works, don't think there is much more I can do right now :).

                    I'm just trying to figure out exactly what went wrong.

                    You created a web project - so it is deploying as a WAR - right?

                    Then you ran generate-entities and got the error?

                    I'll have to look into the code a bit - but I believe the generate-entities will not work with a WAR deployment because you are generating entiy beans.

                    Try generating an EAR application, and then running generate-entities.

                    Also what does your Authenticator class look like, and your components.xml. The error is saying that it can't find your Authenticator class/component.

                      It's definitely better to do an EAR, not a WAR. Seam + EJB3 can be embedded in a WAR but the whole thing is not designed for that usage. It's designed to live in a container. JBoss AS in particular.

                        Yes it's a war.

                        Also do I make of this ?

                          EAR deployment failed :( with something like the message I wrote saying EJBDeployer NotYETINSTALLED

                          • 10. Re: JBoss Seam, a great product that doesn't work :(
                            Jay Balunas Master

                            From my quick look at it - something is up with your JBoss install. It looks like some of the errors that you posted do not have anything to do with the Seam apps.

                            I can't really look into that more right now - if I get a chance I'll look on Monday.

                            Do other applications, or the Jboss console work with your install?

                            Also try a clean install of JBoss. Because the install of JBoss is so easy (just unzip) it is sometimes easier to just do a quick install and try the changes.

                            -Jay

                              Thanks allot Jay. I did do a clean install of JBoss AS, and it finally started to work :).

                              I was using RHDS RC1, and it had a JBoss 4.2.0_CP1. And I was deploying to it. EAR deployment still doesn't work for some reason. War works just fine. Already did some cool things and it all took so little time.. I can hardly believe it.

                              I'm now using Seam 2.0.0.GA, Eclipse JEE + JBoss Tools and JBoss AS 4.2.2.GA.

                              When deploying an EAR this is what it says :

                                :-?? How do I say this. The funny thing is .. after I do a post on the forum everything starts working as it should.

                                Must be the air or something, or maybe the late hour..

                                Although I get those weird Error messages this time around the application started nicely. Did the Seam Generate Entities and worked again. To be honest I think we can close this topic since you helped me got started.

                                A milion thanks and enjoy the rest of the weeked :-h

                                  Well, it says "No META-INF/application.xml found". Is there an application.xml file? There needs to be one.
