    Problem with page navigation (dropdownmenu)

    Stephan  Gerth Newbie

      Hi all,


      I'm new to SEAM (2.1.0).


      1. I have generate a new Seam-Projekt with seam-gen.


      2. It seems that there are some files missing. Eclipse told
         me that this is no Seam-Projekt.


      3. I can not generate the entity because Eclipse find no
         Web-Module ???


      4. deploying and running works.



      !!!  Okay but my main problem is this:


      I have a dropdownmenu with menuitems that calls two seperate pages. I cannot switch between the two pages through the two dropdownmenu items.
      The firstly selected page cannot be changed by selecting the other menuitem.
      I can switch between these seperate two pages only by going back to Home by pressing the 'Home' link and than select the other page from the dropdownmenu


      I have searched the hole internet about my problem but without success.


      any ideas????


      many thanks
      Stephan



      PS: 
      1. i have tested a few things. This is the last stand.
         with a MenuActionBean instaed of a direct call like 
        action = "/view.xhtml/"
      2. I don't know how i can debug these xhtml files?




      menu.xhtml
      ----------


      ...
      <rich:menuItem  value="Kunden" submitMode="server"
                    icon="/images/icons/ico_DataTable.gif" 
                    action="#{MenuActionBean.actionKunde}" 
                    id="mainMenuKundeID" >
      </rich:menuItem>
      <rich:menuItem  value="Personal" submitMode="server"
                 icon="/images/icons/ico_DataTable.gif" 
                 action="/personal_view.xhtml"  
                 id="mainMenuPersonalID">
      </rich:menuItem>
      ...
      




      pages.xml
      ---------


      ...
          <page view-id="kunde_view">
              <navigation>
                  <rule if-outcome="*">
                      <redirect view-id="/kunde_view.xhtml"/>
                  </rule>
              </navigation>
          </page> 
          
         <page view-id="personal_view">
              <navigation>
                  <rule if-outcome="*">
                      <redirect view-id="/personal_view.xhtml"/>
                  </rule>
              </navigation>
          </page> 
       




      menuActionBean.java
      --------------------


      public class MenuActionBean {
      
           
           public String actionKunde(){
                System.err.println("--> actionKunde aufgerufen");
                return "/kunde_view";
           }
           
           public String actionPersonal(){
                System.err.println("--> actionPersonal aufgerufen");
                return "/personal_view";
           }
      }
