Referencing a managed bean object inside another class
posted 4 years ago
I am instantiating a session scoped managed bean in another managed bean. But I want to reference the object in another java class. Like call the objects method.
How to do it. Please show with some code example. Thanks.
JSF is about Inversion of Control and Managed Beans. So normally you would not instantiate beans of session scope or any other scope inside of a JSF managed bean. Instead, you'd define the session scope bean as a managed bean and inject it as a managed-property into the target bean using either faces-config.xml or the equivalent JSF2 annotations.
One of the virtues of IoC is that the wiring together for 2 beans is all done via basic POJO set/get methods which are invoked by the JSF bean manager according to faces config rules that you specify.
