    Could not instantiate seam component error

    Anitha Raj Newbie
      Hello all,

      I am new to seam and i followed SeaminAction book to create a seam project using seam gen tool. Everything worked fine and the application is successfully getting deployed under Jboss server. But when i access the application through the browser the home page will be displayed and when i want to access any of my generated components it gives "Could not instantiate component error". I tried in finding the solution by searching in seam forum and many other links. But that was no help. Please help me what should i do in-order to get rid of this.

      My stack trace looks like this.

      Could not instantiate Seam component: locationList

          The logs clearly show the problems --


          EntityManagerFactory not found in JNDI : java:/entityManager


          Caused by: javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: entityManager not bound



          When I created a new simple Seam Component, I spent hours figuring out the cause of this issue. Simply, it was the Constructor problem. Thru Eclipse, when you create a new Seam Action, it generates a default method which I thought was a constructor. But it was not. It was created with a void return type which implies that it is not a constructor.
