We have an application using JSF and Seam that we are looking at converting to Wicket and Seam. Is it possible to run both view technologies in the same application?
I have upgraded to Seam 2.2.0 and installed wicket along side JSF. When the application loads the first page, which is JSF, I get ClassCastExceptions complaining about seeing Wicket instead of JSF. I am guessing that I need to split the Filters to go to to different paths. Before I start adding in my own filters, I wanted to see if it was even possible with seam or what other issues I might run into.
Anyone have an experience with this?
Thanks in advance.
It's not possible to have jsf/seam and wicket/seam coexist in the same war/ear. I have a patched version of Seam 2.2.x that we use internally to do that, and it works fine, but it wasn't accepted into the core. I can provide that patch to you if you are interested.
Another thing to consider is that seam3, which is based on Weld, doesn't suffer from this limitation.
