    Resolution: Rejected

> @Observer methods may be called multiple times
> ----------------------------------------------
>                 Key: JBSEAM-3983
>                 URL: https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBSEAM-3983
>             Project: Seam
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.1.1.GA
>            Reporter: Vanessa Williams
>            Assignee: Norman Richards
> Some @Observer methods may be called multiple times, while others may not be called at all. This bug is reproducible; occurs in both 2.1.0 and 2.1.1 and requires specific circumstances (described below.)
> I do not have the time (unfortunately) to create a sample project to demonstrate the problem, but it is easy enough to describe.
> Create an EntityHome<E> subclass, let's call it FooHome.java. Override the persist() method and at the end of it, raise an event, say "fooSaved". Now, in the same class create a method postFooSaved() and annotate it with @Observer("fooSaved"). In any other component you like, create another @Observer method, with a different name, say watchFoo(), observing the same event. In this case, everything works as expected. After FooHome.persist() is called, postFooSaved() and watchFoo() will each be executed once.
> Now to replicate the bug: create a subclass of FooHome.java, say BarHome.java. It doesn't matter what it contains. Now postFooSaved() will be executed twice and watchFoo() will not be executed at all.
> As an extended demonstration, create an action component called FooAction.java and move the original postFooSaved() @Observer to that class. Again, all will work as expected, with postFooSaved() and watchFoo() each executing once. Now create a subclass of FooAction: BarAction.java. The bug will re-appear, with postFooSaved() executing twice and watchFoo() not executing at all.
> Hope that helps.
