Hey, Seam is the driving force behind the WebBeans specifications. Once WebBeans specification is out, how this could effects Seam? (Yes, Seam isn't going any where, it is a deep integration framework) Thanks.
We just had a meeting about this. First and foremost, WebBeans is just one of the ideas from Seam. It is about the contextual management of objects (objects that are bound to a scope) and dependency injection. Likely, Seam 3 will support both models, but the named-based injections will likely be the second choice, with type-safe injections provided by WebBeans the primary choice. However, bijection will not be removed anytime soon (because Seam is about options). What you are going to get is a hybrid framework.
