    Seam and JAXWS

    Josh Newbie

      I am investigating Seam for use in developing SOA applications and so far it appears to be very much oriented for use with JSF. The documentation says it takes a web services approach, and thats what I am interested in.

      My underlying question is this, how can I meld Seam with a non platform specific SOA, where clients will be .Net as well as Java apps?

      I am looking for ideas as to how Seam fits with an approach where I am given a WSDL and to go from there to various back ends, as opposed to designing from the DB forward using Seam.

      Any thoughts, caveats would be appreciated.

          Currently, Seam-WS is a big TBD. It's actually not that complex to implement, all we need to do is integrate Seam's contexts into the SOAP servlet ;-)

          But I need to find time, or a volunteer, to sit down and create an example application.

          If you have some simple, elegant example code, I can write the required SOAP/Seam integration in about 1 day.

          Let me know if that interests you.

            was curious, how's the work going with the Seam-WS?

            I know the 1.1 is only in beta 1 .... was just curious how it goes.

              I'm embarrassed to say that the work has not yet started. :-(

              At this point it is looking more like January before we have something to show.

              I know, I know, I promised it earlier, but other things have taken longer than anticipated....

                Oh its ok ... :) we can always use REST instead :) i like rest anyways.

                ... actually i am writing a Seam book as well ... about 2/3 of its done ... and was just trying to figure out if i should put a spacer in that section for web services. Instead I will just mention its on the todo list :)

                  I prefer REST myself :)

                  Its great that you're writing a book, I'm looking forward to seeing it...
