hi all

i'm using jsf and datatable for displaying,deleting and editing result of a query
the problem is when i try to assign the value of the datatable to a Result Object, everything

goes right but as i try to assign a ArrayListDataModel or ListDataModel. it only displays the

last record of my table and it repeat it according to the table records count!
i'm really confused since i've printed the value of the model for different indexes and they are

different! but when it comes to display the data on the datatable, it shows the last record only


is it something wrong with dataTable or something?

thanks in advance

Before pointing the finger at datatable, I would first question the validity of the List.
It is quite possible that the records in the List ARE all the same values.

There is a common error in coding, when looping through an adding items to a list - you need to create a new instance for every item in the list.
Incorrect code:

Correct code:

I agree. Here's the link:
