    Modal Panel and EJB load

    ibstmt Newbie

      I have a problem where the main method of my EJB gets fired whenever I call a Modal Panel. Here are the snippets of my application:

       

      (pages.xml)

         <page view-id="/main.xhtml" login-required="true" action="#{myEJB.load}">

              <begin-conversation join="true"/>

              <param name="callerUrl" required="false" />

              <param name="callerSupportsMultipleResult" required="false" />

              <navigation>

                  <rule if-outcome="home">

                      <redirect view-id="/main.xhtml"/>

                  </rule>

                  <rule if-outcome="back">

                      <redirect view-id="/main.xhtml"/>

                  </rule>

              </navigation>

          </page>

       

       

      (myEJB.java)

      @Stateful

      @Name("myEJB")

      @Scope(ScopeType.CONVERSATION)

      public class MyEJB {

      ....

          public void load() {

             (bunch of initialization code)

          }

       

       

      (main.xhtml)

      ...

           <rich:menuItem submitMode="none" value="Edit">

                          <a4j:support event="onclick" immediate="true"       

                              action="#{anotherEJB.edit}"

                              reRender="editForm"

                              oncomplete="#{rich:component('editModal')}.show()"/> 

                          </rich:menuItem> 

      ...

          <rich:modalPanel id="editModal" autosized="true">

              <f:facet name="header">

                  <h:outputText value="Edit" style="padding-right:15px;" />

              </f:facet>

              <ui:include src="editForm.xhtml" />

          </rich:modalPanel>   

       

      (editForm.xhtml)

         <rich:toolBar>

                      <rich:menuItem submitMode="none" value="Save"  icon="/images/save.png">

                          <a4j:support event="onclick" immediate="true"   

                              reRender="mainPanel"

                              action="#{anotherEJB.save}"

                              oncomplete="#{rich:component('editModal')}.hide()" />   

                      </rich:menuItem>

                   </rich:toolBar>

          <h:form>

          <h:panelGrid id="editForm">

           ...

          </h:panelGrid>

          </h:form>

       

       

      My problem is that every time I choose the Edit menu option on main.xhtml, the load() method in myEJB gets fired when the modal appears (before I close the modal, not after). The modal panel comes up correctly, no problems, but I don't need the load() method to fire every time. I can't remove the action reference in pages.xml, though, because that's needed for other functionality.
