    Cannot instantitate @Embeddable attribute.

    Roger Mori Newbie

      Dear Partners.

      The following xhtml piece references two attributes
      of an Entity-EJB. The first works fine. The second one is
      an @Embeddable attribute but it throws an exception:
      "Cannot instantiate MonetaryAmount"

      Something is wrong.

      Attached is the related code.

      If appreciate your advice.

      Thank you.

      Roger Mori.
