Whenever I hear about Seam, I hear it along with JBoss. Will Seam work only with JBoss? Will it work with JEE 5 on Websphere Application Server?

Also, should I care about Seam, if I don't want JSF? Is Seam comparable to Spring?

In a layer like

Spring MVC -- Sprint ---Hibernate

will the Seam equivalent be:

JSF -- Seam -- EJB3?

I think Seam is really useful if you use it with JSF and EJB3
