    Injection in SeamTest

    F BI Newbie

      Hello,

      I'm facing some problems with my injected properties in my TestNG tests.
      Probably this is very easy to solve, but I currently don't have the "right" idea.

      The class to be tested is as follows:

      @Name("entityManager")
      @Scope(ScopeType.CONVERSATION)
      @SuppressWarnings("unchecked")
      public class EntityManager implements Serializable, PagedEntityManager {
      
       /**
       * The injected entity class name.
       */
       @In(value = "#{entityClassName}", create=true)
       private String m_overrideEntityClassName;
      
      
       public void showEntity(){
      
       ...
       //access the injected field
       print(m_overrideEntityClassName);
      
      
       }
      
      
      }
      


      Note that the name entityManager is just arbitrary and has nothing to do with EJB or JPA EntityManager!

      Now my testclass looks like this

      public class EntityManagerTest
       extends SeamTest {
      
      
       @Test
       public void testPersistEntity() throws Exception {
      
       assert !super.isSessionInvalid();
      
      
       new FacesRequest() {
      
       @Override
       protected void updateModelValues() throws Exception
       {
      
       //try to set the entityClassName
      
       setValue("#{entityClassName}",
       "Client");
      
       }
      
       @Override
       protected void invokeApplication() throws Exception
       {
       //Invoke method that uses previously set entityClassName
       invokeMethod("#{entityManager.showEntity()}");
       }
      
      
      
       }.run();
      
      
      }
      
      


      The problem is: entityClassName is never injected into the entityManager. When accessing the private field it in the method showEntity, it is always null.

      Am I missing something?

      Thanks for any help.
