    How to redirect to two different pages in pages.xml

    Freddy Monsalve Newbie

      Hi everyone, mi question is based in redirecting to one page or another according to a value passed by URL. For example:


      this is the link:




      the site with this data loads a certain xhtml page (i.e: page1.xhtml)

      like pages.xml says:


      <page view-id="/home.xhtml" >
              <action if="#{authenticator.limpiar}" execute="#{identity.login}"  />
                          <param name="user" value="#{user.rut}" />
                          <param name="emp" value="#{user.empRut}" />
                          <param name="auth_level" value="#{user.authLevel}" />
              <navigation from-action="#{identity.login}" >
                      <rule if="#{identity.loggedIn}" >
                              <redirect view-id="/pages/page1.xhtml" />
                      <rule if="#{not identity.loggedIn}">
                              <redirect view-id="/errorLogin.xhtml"/>


      now we added another parameter called &emp_id=1, so the URL now is :


      http://localhost:8080/Refund/home.seam?user=012012&name=john&auth_level=4 &emp_id=1

      and added to pages.xml : <param name="emp_id" value="#{user.emp_id}" />


      the thing is that emp_id can be 1 or 15 and depending that number we need to redirect to one page or another. How can i do that?

      in pages.xml? or in authenticator.java?


      this is the code.



      package cl.exe.sm.reembolso.action;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.In;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Logger;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Name;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Out;
      import org.jboss.seam.log.Log;
      import org.jboss.seam.security.Identity;
      import cl.exe.sm.reembolso.bean.BusquedaBono;
      import cl.exe.sm.reembolso.pojo.User;
      import cl.exe.sm.reembolso.procedures.ManejadorProcedimientos;
      public class Authenticator
          @Logger private Log log;
          @In Identity identity;
          @In @Out Usuario user;
          @Out BusquedaBono busquedaBono; 
          public boolean authenticate()
                    boolean resultado = false;
                    log.info("Autenticando usuario {0}", user.getRut());
              user= ManejadorProcedimientos.autenticarUsuario(user);
              if (usuario.getPerId() == 4){
                        log.info("Usuario autenticado");
                        resultado = true;
              return resultado;
          public boolean getLimpiar(){
                    busquedaBono = new BusquedaBono();
                    return true;


      thanks for your responses!!!!
