    SelectOneMenu from one extra entry the value is set to null

    Hong Kong Newbie

      I have a list of categories and want to add one not existing category (an all category).

      <h:selectOneMenu value="#{categoryBean.selectedCategory}">
      <f:selectItems value="#{categoryBean.categorySelectItems}"/>
      <s:convertEntity />

      private Shelf allCategory = new Category(1);

      public List<SelectItem> getCategorySelectItems() {
                List<SelectItem> items = new ArrayList<SelectItem>();          
                items.add(new SelectItem(allCategory, "search All"));
                for (Category cat : getCategories()) {
                     items.add(new SelectItem(cat, cat.getName()));
                return items;

      For every item except the newly added allCategory i get the right object, just when i select search All i get a null instead of the object in setSelectedCategory(). And return items; contains at the zero index the allCategory object like it should. And the POST is transmitting the 0 as index (like it would 2 or 3 for the other selectItems)
