Hello.

I've got a few questions. I've searched for the answer, but as I didn't find anything in the forums I create this post. Hope it's not answered before:

1º Is SEAM the integration of EJBs and JSF in JBoss or is it anything more? What's the difference between SEAM and, for example, using JSF and EJBs with BEA, Websphere or Geronimo?

2º Is SEAM a framework I have to download or I can use SEAM just having a JBoss and any JSF implementation?

Thank you very much.

Antonio

1) The basic idea behind Seam was a unification of the EJB/JPA and JSF object models. But it has gone much beyond that.

2) Seam is a framework, and you need to download the framework to use it. Just using JPA+EJB+JSF in your app does not mean you are using Seam. And by the way, Seam apps can be deployed to app servers other than JBoss AS.

The book Seam in Action is an excellent introduction into Seam. Looks like chapter 1, which provides an overview, is a free download.

But how did the elephant get like that? What did you do? I think all we can do now is read this tiny ad:
