His has got to be a 'solved' problem before, but I can't seem to come up with the correct combination of google terms to get the answer.
I have a Datatable filled in by a OneToMany relationship off of an Entity(QAHeader) bean. One of the fields in this Entity(QALine) points to another Entity(LineType). I would like the make a selectOneMenu that selects one of the LineType Entities and set the QALine l_type to that Entity.
After some preliminary research, I found out that I have to use a converter. So I wrote a converter to take a string of the LineType ID and return the Object.
*edit* I forgot to mention that the Converter is registered in faces-config.xml
Now I'm getting: Whenever I submit the page, whether I have changed the values or not.
Everywhere I put debug statements the values seem to be valid.
Can anyone point me to a solution?
Here's the function that builds the SelectItem List:
