    Beginner - How to manage several instance of a same form ?

    Bob Mauranne Newbie


      I'm new at Seam and Web-development in general, so, my problem is probably simple to solve, but due to my lack of knowledge on these subjects, I can't figure it out by myself.

      I use Seam 2.1.1.GA, Jboss 4.2.3.GA, JSF 1.2 and Richfaces 3.2.1.GA.

      I have, on my first window, a dataTable with a list of entities. I need to be able, when the user clicks on a row, to open, in a new window, a form for updating the selected entity. The user will open several windows at the same time. When the user save a form, a service accepts it with an @in tag, processes it and send it to the DAS layer.

      I don't know where to start: in what scope should be my forms ? my datatable ?

      I tried put my datatable in Session and my forms in Page, but i don't know how to feed my entity to my form. And, that's what made me post in here, with a simple @in, how do I know which form am i processing ?

      I am sorry for being so clueless, but i don't need a full explanation, just enough leads to understand all of it.

      Thanks for helping

      ps: i'm french and not really fluent in english, so, please excuse my language. I hope i was clear enough. Thanks again.
