I think that using AJAX together with Seam is very good idea.
May you can create more useful examples with AJAX and Seam, for example auto complete input field using seam remote request.
You can see examples here : http://ajaxtags.no-ip.info/ajaxtags-1.2-beta1/autocomplete.jsp.
All scripts are taken from http://script.aculo.us/
Currently I can create ajax requests only using special servlet , that retrieve data from seam component and build ajax response.
You could probably use the remoting framework to build an auto-complete field, however there are already a heap of similar components available (http://myfaces.apache.org/sandbox/inputSuggest.html for one) that already do this.
What the remoting framework is really good at, is enabling you to build a rich client interface which doesn't require "heavy duty" requests to the server to refresh an entire page each time you perform an action. Your page can instead just request the little bits and pieces of data it needs to render/update an interface.
I'm actually looking for a suggestion for a more complex example that will demonstrate more extensively what the remoting framework is capable of. Does anyone have any neat ideas for a demo app that would benefit from being AJAX-enabled?
A demo showing how a cell value may be updated in a grid based on Seam Remoting Framework would be useful;
The Schedule from myfaces-sandbox based on Seam Remoting Framework would also be awsome.
Thanks for this stuff, Shane!
