JBoss Seam Book

Hi Michael Juntao Yuan & Thomas Heute,

Thanks for taking time to write a book on much awaited technology JBoss Seam. I followed Seam for few months and lost interest in it due to the HUGE delay caused by JBoss in releasing the Seam framework.

Is Seam a promising framework when frameworks such as Spring are picking up?

How is this technology going to be different than JEMS?

What is going to be the future of Seam? Please let us know a highlevel roadmap?

Once again thanks for answering questions on this forum.

While both Seam and Spring use the terms Framework, they are two different types of Frameworks. Seam is more like a web application framework, whereas Spring is more of a server framework with services.

Personally, I feel, and this is just my opinion, is that Spring is on the downslope.

This technology is part of JEMS, and really glues a lot of JEMS products together, so I wouldn't say there can be a difference pointed out.

Seam will continue to grow and there are plenty of releases already scheduled, and are on a fast release cycle.
