    Seam 2.2 and the authenticator component

    Brian Hart Newbie

      For a couple of reasons we have a project-commons.jar located in the lib directory of our ear.


      project.ear
        project-web.war
        project-ejb.jar
        lib
          project-commons.jar




      The issue seems specific to how the components.xml resolves the security:identity tag. Currently if I annotate a class that is placed in project-commons.jar as the




      @Name("authenticator")
      @Scope(ScopeType.APPLICATION) 




      SEAM does not locate the authenticator component. The error is



      javax.el.PropertyNotFoundException: Target Unreachable, identifier 'authenticator' resolved to null

      If I place the @authenticator in project-web.war or project-ejb.jar it finds the authenticator and everything works. To be clear project-commons is being 'found' from a classpath perspective (a lot of code in project-web and project-ejb.jar leverage it. This issue seems specific to how the components.xml resolves the security:identity tag.
