This is a really weird thing happening right now. I'm using JSF with JPA. First off, I'm trying to print the values so I could see if the value I'm getting from the JSF page is correct.
Netbeans tried to put my controller in session scope which makes the attribute fixedItem of the fixedItem controller also in session scope.
Now, when I submit the form it will invoke a method called create which looks like this
As you can see, there are various print statements there for the employeeId attribute of fixedItem(the model not the controller this time). To my surprise, everything that is printed is null.
EMPLOYEE ID IN LOGXXXX: null EMPLOYEE ID IN LOGX: null EMPLOYEE ID IN LOGYYYY: null EMPLOYEE ID IN LOG0: null EMPLOYEE ID IN LOG1: null EMPLOYEE ID IN LOG2: null EMPLOYEE ID IN LOG3: null
The funny thing is that in JPA I am able to insert something in the database and it's the right value. I shouldn't be able to do this given that the values printed are all null. In my FixedItem.java(fixedItem model) the mapping looks like this...
