JSF2 Error

I am new to JSF and am trying to work through the Core JavaServer Faces (3rd Edition) Book.

The first project is for a login page.

I can get the index.xhtml page to come up but when I enter the name and password I get this error

/index.xhtml @15,55 value="#{user.name}": Target Unreachable, identifier 'user' resolved to null

I have seen previous discussions on this but none of those solutions helped me.

this is my UserBean.java



My index.xhtml



my welcome.xhtml




Here is my web.xml



and my faces-config.xml



I am not sure where my error is. any help would be appreciated

JSF often doesn't work well for login/loginfail, welcome, and other container-dispatched webpages. Actual behaviour seems to depend on the vendor and version of the appserver, but often these pages are dispatched directly by the server and don't go through the FacesServlet (Struts users have a similar problem).

The workaround is typically to make the welcome page be an HTML page that contains a redirect to the JSF page.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

I decided to punt and completely rewrote it from a clean project.

I believe I did everything the same but it now works.

Thank you for the response.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
