    Sorting Columns and Long Running Conversation

    Jeff Palmer Newbie

      I am having some trouble implementing sorting where the table to sort is contained in a page involved in a long running conversation. It looks like since the conversation id isn't changing (since it's a long running conversation), the query is never executed. The sorting works find when the cid is removed. Anyone know of a way to resolve this?

          DmaCaseEdit.xhtml (this is the page that is starting the long running conversation when I choose the select employee link)

            I'm not sure, but it seems to me that page params doesn't set properly when you navigate from DmaCaseEdit.xhtml (faces request). When you remove cid you perform a non-faces request (page params processed in a different fashion).
            Please post sort.xhtml and scope of the involved components.

              Jeff Palmer Newbie

              I'm just using the default sort.xhtml, which is as follows:




              <ui:composition xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
                  xmlns:ui="http://java.sun.com/jsf/facelets"
                  xmlns:f="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core"
                  xmlns:h="http://java.sun.com/jsf/html"
                  xmlns:c="http://java.sun.com/jstl/core"
                  xmlns:s="http://jboss.com/products/seam/taglib">
                  <s:link styleClass="columnHeader" value="#{propertyLabel} #{entityList.orderColumn == propertyPath ? (entityList.orderDirection == 'desc' ? messages.down : messages.up) : ''}">
                      <f:param name="sort" value="#{propertyPath}"/>
                      <f:param name="dir" value="#{entityList.orderColumn == propertyPath and entityList.orderDirection == 'asc' ? 'desc' : 'asc'}"/>
                  </s:link>
              </ui:composition>



              It's odd. In the Seam in Action book, the author states that When you submit the search form, you don't see these parameters in the browser's location bar because they're passed through the UI component tree instead. I'm definitely seeing the parameters in the location bar though. My EmployeeList.page.xml file is as follows:




              <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
              <page xmlns="http://jboss.com/products/seam/pages"
                    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
                    xsi:schemaLocation="http://jboss.com/products/seam/pages http://jboss.com/products/seam/pages-2.2.xsd"
                    login-required="true">
              
                 <param name="firstResult" value="#{employeeList.firstResult}"/>
                 <param name="sort" value="#{employeeList.orderColumn}"/>
                 <param name="dir" value="#{employeeList.orderDirection}"/>
                 <param name="logic" value="#{employeeList.restrictionLogicOperator}"/>
              
                 <param name="from"/>
                 <param name="employeeNumber" value="#{employeeCriteria.bureau}"/>
                 <param name="firstName" value="#{employeeExample.firstName}"/>
                 <param name="lastName" value="#{employeeExample.lastName}"/>
                 <param name="positionTitle" value="#{employeeExample.positionTitle}"/>
              
              </page>
              



              Like I said in my previous post, the sorting on the EmployeesList page works fine when I access that page directly. It's only problematic when I access the page from the long running conversation that begins when I access the EmployeeList page from the DmaCaseEdit page.

                s:link and s:button issue HTTP GET request, h:commandButton or h:link submit HTTP POST request.


                with GET you'll see params post-pended to the URL, with POST you won't.

                  Jeff Palmer Newbie
                  Thanks. That explains why I'm seeing the parameters in the browser's location bar, since sort.xhtml is using an <s:link> to generate the column sorting.

                  The more serious question is why the sorting isn't working on the page when it's involved in a long running conversation. Can this be done?

                    Kurt Bliefernich Newbie

                    I had this same issue.  I changed the scope from conversation to page to fix it.  I think it has to do with each conversation having it's own set of results.  Until the conversation is updated it just redisplays the same stale results.


                    The thing that drove me crazy was going to the next page and seeing that the sort then worked.


                    You could try adding


                    <begin-conversation join="true"/>



                    The conversation scope in the page.xml file is talked about here
