when I try to run my seam project while offline I get to following error at the startup (from org.jboss.seam.navigation.pages component) because of the absence of connection:
java.lang.RuntimeException: Cannot connect to host from schema/DTD reference: jboss.com - check that your schema/DTD reference is current
How can I bypass the XML validation while I run my app offline?
This normally happens when you have upgraded from one version of seam to another and have not updated the DTD's /schema references in the pages.xml and .page.xml files in your project. Update these to point to the correct schema from your version of seam and the problem will go away (and the performance of your app will massively increase).
