Hi experts,

I am working on jboss seam project and having error dependency injection.
I have auto generated Authenticator class :


@Name("authenticator")
public class Authenticator {

       @In(create= true)
	private String projectYear;
...

        public boolean authenticate() {
...

              private projectYear = "2001";
...

         public String getProjectYear() {
		return projectYear;
	}

	public void setProjectYear(String projectYear) {
		this.projectYear = projectYear;
	}
++++++++++++++

Open in new window




I have this error:
@In attribute requires non-null value: authenticator.projectYear


Another question is:

authenticator.getProjectYear():

The above gives me null in other class. Why is that? (I can still set projectYear though.)

thanks,

I am setting it Authenticator class.

@Name("authenticator")
public class Authenticator {

...

if ("khsa".equals(credentials.getUsername()) && "khsa2011".equals(credentials.getPassword())) {

                        identity.addRole("khsa2011");
                        
                        projectYear = "2001";

                        return true;
}

************

And I am trying to access projectYear  from other class.

but your annotation defines that the value will be injected
If its not being injected then remove the annotation

you're setting it in authenticate() from what I can see.
If you're not calling that method, and you're not injecting it then its not going to be set
