Why does transfer of data InputField <-> Value Attribute not work?
I'm just starting to learn Web Dynpro Java. In the book "SAP NetWeaver Portal" from SAP PRESS, I followed the Web Dynpro example application from chapter 6.4. It is supposed to accept your name on one View ('StartView') in an InputField and show it on the next View ('ResultView').
The InputField on the first View is associated with the Value Attribute "Context -> Node1 -> My_Name". Similarly, on the ResultView there is a TextView that has as its text attribute "Context -> Node1 -> My_Name" (as selected from the attribute popup).
The problem is that the string that I enter into the InputField on the 'StartView' doesn't get shown on the TextView of the 'ResultView'.
What could be the problem?
