Andy Gibson commented on JBSEAM-1712:

Not sure it needs to recognize that it is a nested PC, just a vanilla old PC would be good enough. 

However, after looking at nested conversations, and the thinking behind them, I'm not sure we need this JIRA given that nested conversations weren't meant for editing details, but to provide multiple paths for editing data in the original conversation.

>                 Key: JBSEAM-1712
>                 URL: http://jira.jboss.com/jira/browse/JBSEAM-1712
>             Project: JBoss Seam
>          Issue Type: Feature Request
>          Components: Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0.BETA1
>         Environment: Windows XP, Seam 2.0 Beta, JBoss 4.2
>            Reporter: Andy Gibson
> I'd like to request the option to specify that a nested conversation gets it's own entity manager instance as opposed to sharing it with it's parent conversation and other nested conversations. 
> The problem with nested conversations is that you can't actually use them to edit multiple entities since when you flush the PC, you flush it for all conversations. This makes nested conversations only really useful for browsing data, and creating new top level conversation to edit items to isolate the flushes.
> The only alternative is to use a non-Seam managed PC, and make use of the "PC per stateful bean" rule to map a single PC to a single backing bean, but you lose the benefits of a seam managed PC.
> What might be nice is something like :
> @Begin(nested=true, newPC=true)
> and
> <begin-conversation nested="true" newPC="true"/>
> which would indicate that this new nested conversation gets it's own entity manager instance. The attribute would be ignored if this wasn't a nested conversation, and obviously, by default, the attribute is set to false, and a shared PC would be used in the nested conversation in such cases.
> I'm already using one PC per conversation by using top level conversations to edit items, I'd just like to use one PC per nested conversation (where applicable) to get the benefits of nested conversations.
> There are a couple of posts in the forums where I've touched on some of my problems with this issue :
