    Adding Seam 2 Settings error

    davidmiller Newbie

      I am using Eclipse Indigo, with the latest JBoss tools.

      For an existing Seam 2 project I am unable to apply Seam 2 Settings to any of the Seam projects (the main seam project, ejb).

       

      Any time that I try and set seam settings to a known Seam runtime I get the following nullpointer:

       

          java.lang.NullPointerException

          I solved this, but I never got to the root cause.

           

          I used a version I knew worked and copied the .classpath and .project files for eclipse into the offending project.  Not the best solution, but it worked.   Nothing I could to manually worked in preferences when comparing the 2 projects, as they were exactly the same(except for the code base changes).
