I have a page with a datatable in a CRUD scenario. I need to populate the datatable when the page is loaded. Where should this population occur? In the constructor? Is there another place? I have not been able to find any examples of this scenario? Can someone point me in the right direction and/or provide some examples? Do I have to actually get the data from another page and put it in the session and then send someone to this page? That seems to be a little much? Am I limited to only letting the page load to an empty datagrid and forcing the user to press a button after the page loads? Is the bean constructor the only place the loading can occur?
