    Reserved characters in EL and or managed bean names

    Paul Mander Newbie


      I'm doing a bit of investigation on how I can integrate Seam into an existing application framework to solve some issues. I encountered an issue when using managed bean name defined in faces-config.xml that contain a $ character. Defining a simple request scoped bean in faces config and attempting to get a reference to it via xhtml markup or within code via ValueBinding results in a null object reference.

      This only happens when I introduce Seam into the equation.

      I'm using Seam 1.2.1.GA, Trinidad 1.0.7, MyFaces 1.1.4 running on WebSphere

      This is not an ideal stack but I am constrained in this area.

      Any help would be much appreciated.
