Seam Tip Number 4

Seam Tip Number 4 : @In(required = false) pitfall

In retrospect this is really obvious, but a member variable annotated with @In will be overwritten in subsequent invocations of a Stateful Session Bean even with a "required = false" on the annotation.

I had assumed that the "required = false" would prevent the variable from being injected if it wasn't present, but that isn't the case.

This is a completely cool Firefox plugin that Neal Ford mentioned in his Productivity talk at No Fluff Just Stuff (I was at the Atlanta one.)

Clicking ctrl + z or ctrl + w will display small, numbered boxes next to the clickable elements in a page. You can then click the link by clicking the number and enter from the keyboard.
