The editorial review for the book mentions that the book covers, among other things:

Managing business processes, defining stateful pageflows, and implementing rule-based security


Rule-based security? JSR-85 which seems to be related to this, was rejected. Do servers support rule-based security?

Seam has its own rule-based security system based on Drools. It is very easy to use for simple cases (e.g., people with certain roles can access certain pages, methods, or parts of pages etc.)

It can scale up to the most sophisticated security rules (e.g., who has access to which instance of a certain class etc.)

The book covers the security system in Seam.

Great! Certainly, something to look forward to.
