    ManagedBeans are unreachable. Seam 3 + Richfaces + Glassfish 3

    ole . Newbie



      I'm trying to setup a Seam 3 + Richfaces app on a Glassfish 3 webserver. I'm using maven for the building process.

      Currently I only try to use a really simple managed bean:





      public class RichBean implements Serializable {


          private static final long serialVersionUID = -6239437588285327644L;


          private String name;



          public void postContruct() {

              name = "John";



          public String getName() {

              return name;



          public void setName(String name) {

              this.name = name;

          xmlns:ui="http://java.sun.com/jsf/facelets" xmlns:a4j="http://richfaces.org/a4j">



          <ui:composition template="/templates/template.xhtml">


              <ui:define name="title">RichFaces Sample</ui:define>


              <ui:define name="body">

                  <h:form prependId="false">

                      <h:outputLabel value="Name:" for="nameInput" />

                      <h:inputText id="nameInput" value="#{richBean.name}">

                          <a4j:ajax event="keyup" render="output" />


                      <h:panelGroup id="output">

                          <h:outputText value="Hello #{richBean.name}!" rendered="#{not empty richBean.name}" />










      The problem ist that the bean cannot be found:



      WARNUNG: /index.xhtml @13,70 value="#{richBean.name}": Target Unreachable, identifier 'richBean' resolved to null

      javax.el.PropertyNotFoundException: /index.xhtml @13,70 value="#{richBean.name}": Target Unreachable, identifier 'richBean' resolved to null



      This managed bean and the index.xhtml are packen in a war file. This war file is packed together with my ejb file in a ear file. The ejbs are working properly.

      During startup of the app I can see that the empty beans.xml of the war file wont be read (only from the .ejb):



      INFO: Solder Config XML provider starting...

      INFO: Loading XmlDocumentProvider: org.jboss.solder.config.xml.bootstrap.ResourceLoaderXmlDocumentProvider

      INFO: Reading XML file: file:/glassfish3/glassfish/domains/domain1/applications/core/ejb__mEjb_jar/META-INF/seam-beans.xml

      INFO: Reading XML file: jar:file:/glassfish3/glassfish/domains/domain1/applications/core/lib/seam-rest-3.1.0.Final.jar!/META-INF/beans.xml

      INFO: Reading XML file: jar:file:/glassfish3/glassfish/domains/domain1/applications/core/lib/seam-rest-api-3.1.0.Final.jar!/META-INF/beans.xml



      I have tried to place the beans.xml in /WEB-INF, WEB-INF/classes/META-INF and /META-INF. I think this is only a configuration issue but I dont know where I have to look for the problem.
