s:selectItems doesn't reload when backing collection content changes

                 Key: JBSEAM-4382

             Project: Seam
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: JSF Controls
    Affects Versions: 2.1.2.GA

            Reporter: Christof Van Hove

links to the problem in the forum:


The selectItems only get updated if the reference to the backing collection changes:

explanation  from Gena:
it's a bug the line 159 within the Method Object org.jboss.seam.ui.component.UISelectItems.getValue():

Line 159: if (selectItems == null || originalValue == null || !originalValue.equals(super.getValue())) 

and as you can see, originalValue.equals(super.getValue()) is always true as of implementation of AbstractList

Line 479: AbstractList.equals  if (o == this) return true
So if our base collection still be the same, selectItems doesn't refresh. And this occurs, if the selectItems was already initialized within the same request but with another count of elements (ie. for validate/convert the applied request values) there is no chance to refresh the selectItems unless recreating the collecion - so it's a bug. The new collection resolves the problem, because is not equals to cached one as of AbstractList contract.
