The benefits of Seam in a web stack appear to be fairly obvious. But, we also have a need to connect to the facades from a desktop based client. Having done this with another EJB project, we had no luck making it work after getting a Seam-Gen generated project running.
Is it possible to create a remote client version of the facades that will work through RMI? (This could also be useful in the case of clustered web servers.)

The answer is "yes". In Seam 1.3 (this week!), we will support stateful web services (expand the standard EJB3 web services). It will be easy to hook non-web client to it.
If you prefer Seam 1.2, you can still write a simple servlet to provide a facade. Check out the GWT integration servlet in Seam CVS to see how it is done. Thanks.
