can you give some examples of how to access the actual target source from the proxy instance ?

need help to reference actual component from proxy.
Seam component is injected into a spring bean. Methods of seam component are required to be accessed inside the spring bean .

Does anyone have any example of using seam components in spring beans especially with proxy ?

I have a seam component injected in spring bean as follows.
SPRING CONTEXT below------------------------------------------------------
<seam:instance name="compSeam" create="true" scope="STATELESS" id="compSeam" proxy="true"/>

<beans:bean id="beanSpring" >
class="com.sys.authentication.ASpringBean" >
<beans:property name="compSeam" > <beans:ref local="compSeam" />

SPRING BEAN CLASS below----------------------------------------------------------
package com.sys.authentication;

public class ASpringBean {

ASeamComponent compSeam;

public void setCompSeam(ASeamComponent compSeam) {

System.out.println("Setting Seam AseamComponent in ASpring bean ");

this.compSeam = compSeam;


public ASeamComponent getCompSeam() {

return this.compSeam;


public String getSpringBeanUsername() {
return "Spring - username";

public String getSeamComponentUserName() { /---------------this method is giving error as envocationexception //
return compSeam.getUsername(); //


SEAM COMPONENT below------------------------------------------------------
package com.sys.authentication;

import org.jboss.seam.ScopeType;
import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Name;
import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Scope;

public class ASeamComponent {

public String getUsername() {
return "Seam - username";


This gives erorr on accessing the seam component's method
