Take some time to read the Seam documentation.
You cannot use Seam without using conversations. Every request/response happens inside a conversation. The difference is that these conversations are only temporary conversations and not long running.
You do not need to put any propagation=
ENDin any of your links unless you have put the @Begin annotation in your beans on one of your methods somewhere (or started a long running conversation with propagation=
BEGINor any other way of promoting a temporary conversation to long running). If you never promote a temp conversation to long running then it is basically the same as the EVENT scope. (Do more reading on this to get all the details).
So, without promoting a conversation to long running, then each request should be in a new conversation without any interaction from you.
So, summing up.
- Seam is always using conversations
- Conversations are temporary unless your specifically promote them to long running.
- You do not need to use propagation=
VALUEunless you are using long running conversations
Now, all that being said. My app is done completely with long running converstaions, so my level of knowledge about not using long running conversations is probably not the best. So, if someone picks up something that I have said and it's wrong, please correct me. :)
