So I've been looking at Seam for the past couple of days. Looks really nice, very promising. Should provide a great model for all kinds of apps. Thanks for the great work!
Two non-technical questions have come to mind:
1) I understand Gavin is probably busy with the next edition of HIA (which, I understand, includes EJB3 support), but is there any plan for a "SIA" book?
2) Will there be a new feature added to the JBossIDE for Seam development (component wizards, diagrams, that kind of thing)?
1) actually christian is doing most of the work on HiA2. We do plan to write a book titled "Seamless Enterprise Java" about Seam/EJB3/JSF.
2) Absolutely, tool support is a central part of the vision. We will soon release an update to HibernateIDE that allows reverse engineering of an entire Seam application, much along the lines of what Rails has.
