    seam project cant find groovy classes - help please

    William Woodman Master

      having a problem using groovy within seam project
      I have installed jboss tools 3.1cr1, eclipse, groovy plugin, seam 2.2 and as5.1
      i create a seam project in eclipse (generates 4 projects on the disk) and enabled groovy on the ejb project and the web project.
      i created a standard entity in java using the menus - no problem
      I then create another entity as asubclass as a groovy entity see below

      package org.domain.forsterslist.session;
      import org.domain.forsterslist.entity.Person;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Begin;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Name;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.web.RequestParameter;
      import org.jboss.seam.framework.EntityHome;
      class PersonHome extends EntityHome<Person>
           @RequestParameter Long personId;
           public Object getId()
                if (personId == null)
                     return super.getId()
                     return personId
           @Override @Begin
           public void create() 

      this compiles ok and classes get generated into build/classes subdirectories
      however when i deploy on the server i get class not found exception. class loader cant find my groovy compiled class
      how do i fix this?
