Hello Authors,
Welcome to Java Ranch and thanks for the promotion.

I worked on some Java and JEE applications and worked on Struts framework.

But I'm still newbie in this Seam!!

So for starters how will it this helpful?
What difference is there between Seam and other frameworks like Spring , Struts etc. ?
What job potential does it is have and how many companies are using this framework?
What applications use this Seam ?
When will this be book be released and is it available in India for Sub-continent price.

Thanks and Regds

Struts evolves into JSF, and Seam bridges the gap between JSF and other JEE frameworks (like EJB3). Seam is different from Spring but I think past experience with Spring will definitely help here since Seam uses many Spring concepts.

Yes, the book should be helpful to starters. I do not know when it will be available in India though.

We have seen a lot of job descriptions requiring Seam. Considering this technology is still fairly young, the uptake is impressive -- think early days of Hibernate or Spring ...
