[jboss-user] [JBoss Seam] - pageflow annotation and pages.xml

I am using seam 1.20. I have a problem starting a pageflow:

If I use the pageflow property of the @Begin annotation the pageflow will not start and subsequently will not move from the first page. e.g:

  | Pageflow
  | <pageflow-definition name="linkCorrespondence">
  |    <start-page name="upload" view-id="/secure/document/linkCorrespondenceWfUpload.xhtml">
  |       <transition name="next" to="entity"></transition>
  |    </start-page>
  | @Create  @Begin(flushMode=FlushModeType.MANUAL,pageflow="linkCorrespondence")
  | public void create() {
  | }

However the following code does work when using the depreciated function:

  | @Create @Begin(flushMode=FlushModeType.MANUAL,pageflow="linkCorrespondence")
  | public void create() {
  |    	Conversation.instance().beginPageflow("linkCorrespondence");
  | }

The pageflow does work if I use <begin-conversation> element in the pages.xml:

  |     <page view-id="/secure/document/linkCorrespondenceWfUpload.xhtml">
  | 	    <begin-conversation pageflow="linkCorrespondence" join="true" flush-mode="MANUAL"/>
  |     	<description>Link new correspondence</description>
  |     </page>

However the conversation must specify join="true". If it does not and the page refreshes or submits then a new conversation is started which produces an error. I also notice that if the conversation is started using <begin-conversation> that the conversation description is not shown in the conversationList or on the debug.seam page. Is this a consequence of specifying join=true?
