    Seam Persistence- Can't Use The EntityManager

    Maddi Carbaeu Newbie
      Hi all,
      i'm getting a nervous breakdown while thinking on this topic ;)

      ==============================================================================
      What I use:
      seam 3, JBOSS AS 7.0.1, Primefaces
      ==============================================================================

      ==============================================================================
      What I did so far:
      1. added hibernate to maven:

      2. have a hibernat.properties - File:

      hibernate.connection.password=XXXXXXXX
      hibernate.connection.username=userName
      hibernate.connection.driver_class=oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver
      hibernate.dialect=org.hibernate.dialect.Oracle10gDialect
      hibernate.connection.url=jdbc\:oracle\:thin\:@localhost\:1521\:ora11g

      hibernate.connection.provider_class=org.hibernate.connection.DriverManagerConnectionProvider
      hibernate.datasource=
      hibernate.transaction.manager_lookup_class=

      ==============================================================================
      3. created a persistence.xml

      <persistence xmlns='http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/persistence'
          xmlns:xsi='http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance'
          xsi:schemaLocation='http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/persistence http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/persistence/persistence_2_0.xsd'
          version='2.0'>
          <persistence-unit name='database'>
              <jta-data-source>java:/jdbc/dceDS</jta-data-source>
              <properties>
                  <property name='hibernate.dialect' value='org.hibernate.dialect.Oracle10gDialect' />
                  <property name='hibernate.hbm2ddl.auto' value='create-drop' />
                  <property name='hibernate.show_sql' value='true' />
                  <property name='hibernate.format_sql' value='false' />
                  <property name='hibernate.use_sql_comments' value='true' />
              </properties>
          </persistence-unit>
      </persistence>
      ==============================================================================

      ==============================================================================
      4. Created a DataSource in standalone.xml
      <datasource jndi-name='java:/jdbc/dceDS' pool-name='OracleDS' enabled='true' jta='true' use-java-context='true' use-ccm='true'>
                          <connection-url>
                              jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:ora11g
                          </connection-url>
                          <driver>
                              ojdbc6.jar
                          </driver>
                          <pool>
                              <prefill>
                                  false
                              </prefill>
                              <use-strict-min>
                                  false
                              </use-strict-min>
                              <flush-strategy>
                                  FailingConnectionOnly
                              </flush-strategy>
                          </pool>
                          <security>
                              <user-name>
                                  userName
                              </user-name>
                              <password>
                                  XXXXXXXX
                              </password>
                          </security>
                      </datasource>
      ==============================================================================

      ==============================================================================
      5. Created a Module for oracle and add the drivers (module.xml):
      <module xmlns='urn:jboss:module:1.0' name='com.oracle.db'>
          <resources>
              <resource-root path='ojdbc6.jar'/>
          </resources>
          <dependencies>
              <module name='javax.api'/>
              <module name='javax.transaction.api'/>
          </dependencies>
      </module>
      ==============================================================================

      ==============================================================================
      6. Add some Tags in my beans.xml
      <beans xmlns='http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee' xmlns:xsi='http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance'
              xmlns:s='urn:java:ee' xmlns:t='urn:java:org.jboss.seam.transaction'
              xsi:schemaLocation='
            http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee
            http://docs.jboss.org/cdi/beans_1_0.xsd'>

              <t:SeSynchronizations>
                      <s:modifies />
              </t:SeSynchronizations>

              <t:EntityTransaction>
                      <s:modifies />
              </t:EntityTransaction>
      </beans>
      ==============================================================================

      7. Tried to use the EntityManager in my controller-class:

      public class RuleController {
             
              private Rule rule;

              private Collection<Rule> rules;
             
              @ExtensionManaged
          @PersistenceUnit
          @ConversationScoped
          EntityManagerFactory producerField;
             
              @Inject
              private EntityManager em;
             
             
              private static RuleController instance = new RuleController();


              private RuleController() {
              }

              public static RuleController getInstance() {
                      return instance;

              }
             
              /** Anlegen einer neuen Regel.
               *
               */
              public void createRule(Rule rule){
                     
                      rule.setId(new RuleDefinitionsId(new BigDecimal(1),new BigDecimal(0)));
                      rule.setSortNo(new BigDecimal(1));
                      rule.setChangedBy('Matthias');
                      rule.setRulePriority(new BigDecimal(1));
                      rule.setVersionEndDate(new Date());
                      rule.setVersionEndDate(new Date());
                      rule.setVersionOperation('i');
                      System.out.println(rule);
                      System.out.println('is em Open?'+em.isOpen());
                      em.persist(rule);
              }
      ==============================================================================

      ==============================================================================
      What works?
      I definetly have a connection to the database. The entity classes have been created as tables in my database
      ==============================================================================

      ==============================================================================
      Where is the Problem?
      My application works fine as long as I hit the button to persist the Entry. The first system.out. shows that everything is filled right. The next System.out throws a NullPointerException. So the fault should be there. I think my EntityManager isn't defined. But I have no clue what to do and google or the documentation couldn't help. Do you have any ideas to move on?

      (I changed my " to ' due to formatting errors)
