Subject Collision of session object and h:dataTable "internal variable"
Date Sat, 04 Feb 2006 02:36:31 GMT
Hi there,

I'm having a problem of the wrong bean being resolved on an h:dataTable...
I'm building a JSF application to augment a legacy JSP application (in other
words, there are still a lot of plain-jsp pages still left). In the
h:dataTable I have the following statement:

<h:dataTable var="attribute" value="#{
    <h:column rendered="#{attribute.hasProperties}">

I tested it all separately and it worked fine. However, when I integrated
with the previous system (i.e., put it into QA and the QA navigated through
the legacy pages), I got an error message saying that it could not find the
method "hasProperties" in the bean. When I paid more attention to the error
message, it was looking for the bean in a legacy data type.

I then went through the legacy code and found the following call:

pageContext.setAttribute( "attribute", oldObject, PageContext.SESSION_SCOPE

And what it looks like is that when it is running, instead of resolving to
the dataTable-set "local" variable it is resolving to the session object. Is
this an expected behavior? Is the only way of going around this to rename my
dataTable variables to something that does not collide with any set session

Thank you,
