    Joe Joe Newbie

      Hello, I am attempting to run chapter one example of beginning JSF 2 API and JBoss Seams by Apress. I am having trouble getting the

      #{foo.subject}

      to display in the browser. Please help


      note I have already created a seams web project in eclipse and have moved the hello.xhtml file into the webcontext folder. here is code for the xhtml




      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
      <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
      <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"

      </head>

      my java file contained in a package in src is.
      package helloworld1;




      import javax.annotation.Named;
      import javax.context.RequestScoped;
      
      @Named("foo")
      @RequestScoped
      public class GreetingService {
          public String getSubject() {
              return "Paul";
          }
      }
