hi folks, I'm new in JSF
I developed a JSF application,
application is about a small library
okay, admin users can add new book to system(DB)
I do it with a method in a managed bean, but
some problems are here
the bookAdd.jsp page (it's Okay)

and related managed bean (the problem specify with [x])

everything works okay, except addBook() method, id doesn't add any new record with JPA, or throws any exception, also it works till [x]
[0]:record(s) can not add to DB
[1]:this operation doesn't work(process)
*without any new record(s) or changes in database
*web server doesn't throw any exception

please help!

My guess is that your transaction commit process isn't correct, but I don't do anything that's remotely like what you're doing.

First of all, I'm using DTO/Service classes to handle the persistence rather than attempting to jam everything into the backing bean.

Secondly, I use Spring to manage the DTO/Service instances. Spring can automatically provide the transaction management as well as the grunt work of cleaning up exceptions and stuff like that. And Spring and JSF play together quite well.

While I use more classes to get the work done, the individual classes are all simpler, since they only attempt to accomplish one thing, and they're enough like related classes in the same tier that it makes for easier maintenance and testing.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
