I have a rich:dataTable which displays some records from a table called gradetoskill. This table has grades from 0-15 and skill levels of 1,2 and 3. With seam, I have generated the default list page which shows the records in the dataTable. I have modified the 'skill' column to display a dropdown with the 3 values. The default edit of Seam updates one record at a time but I want to give the user the ability to click on an edit button at the top of the table and edit multiple records by letting the user select the 'skill level' from the dropdown and clicking save. Can anyone tell me how I can accomplish this?
