    Difference between seam.properties and components.xml ??

    Asbjørn Leeth Newbie

      I have a question regarding the difference between seam.properties and components.xml. I have a named SLSB where I have a property that needs to be configured . If I configure the property via seam.properties the property remains NULL. However if I use components.xml to configure the property the property is set correctly.
      As far as I understand configuration via seam.properties or components.xml should have the same behaviour, but this example tells me otherwise.

      public class ActionImpl implements Action{
      private string myProperty;


      myComponent.myProperty = foo


      <component name="myComponent" >
      <property name="myProperty"> foo </property>

          seam.properties is just a properties file

          components.xml allows you to set properties and configure many other options as well

          As for why it doesn't work. I assume you have the getters/setters provided. Ff not this will need to be added. Additionally, I had to make a copy of seam.properties and place it in WEB-INF/classes/ folder of the war. I don't know if this is a requirement or not but that was the only way I was able to get it working. I just left the seam.properties in the jar empty.
