Followed this steps:
- deployed the application in examples/portal using ant, as described in examples/portal/readme.txt
- Entered http://localhost:8080/portal
- Selected the SeamHibernate portlet tab, registered user, logged in...
- Searched hotels, selected one of them, and pressed the "Book" button.
In the Book Hotel screen, if the credit card number hasn't got 16 digits, a message is shown. After that, having entered 16 digits for the credit card, instead of the confirm screen, the "Search Hotels" screen is shown, with the message "No conversation".
So, after a failed validation, the conversation is lost.
In my own examples I've substituted conversational scope with session scope, just to see them working.
