Is it possible to disable redirect feature of seam? Let's imagine that I have the action edit and it return /user/profile.xhtml outcome. By default Seam will redirect this page. Can I disable this?
Seam will either forward or redirect based on how you have things configured.
Have you tried using outcomes instead of explicit view-ids. I would recommend using this since it helps to decouple the java classes from organization of your views.
There is an extensive section on 18.104.22.168. Navigation as well as numerous examples in the source.
