    JBoss Seam don´t work.

    Alexandre M. Janoni Newbie

      I have been try to put seam examples to work but everthing don´t work.
      I just read the start guide and tryed to deploy example applications in jboss and tomcat, using java 5 and i have no success.

      I lost 2 days trying understand and make it run because i´m working in a new project, but i thing it´s a immature framework and i will have a lot of problems when I put it in production.

          ajanoni, follow the directions in the following link exactly.

          http://labs.jboss.com/portal/jbossseam/gettingstarted

          Most likely you had the same problems I had at first also, I downloaded the regular installer that is linked from the main jboss.org downloads site. You actually can't use SEAM with this installer, and you need the JEMS installer.

          Hope that helps.

            I think it is immature to begin ranting about a framework being immature before you even ask help or just read the neccesay documentation. I can't believe it costed you 2 days. You probably didn't look on the forum or on the wiki. I got SEAM running within half an hour.

            I even succeeded to setup an eclipse project structure within 2 hours. This includes hot-deploy and debugging.

            Just because you are frustrated doesn't mean that it is the fault of the software.

            I do agree that the documentation could be a bit better with some stuff that create frequent problems. But just take 5 minutes to look in the forum and you will probably find the solution.

              Even if you have to fight to get it working it is well worth it.

                Make no mistake, Seam is HARD to set up. Documentation is lacking. But it is worth it. It is the first truly object-oriented web application system I've ever seen.

                  It is a bit hard if you did not work with JSF and EJB3 before ( like me )
                  When it start working it is nr. 1 :-)

                      Right, exactly. I had never used JSF or EJB3 before. I have used Hibernate and I really liked it, and EJB3 is very similar to Hibernate in concept (and uses a lot of Hibernate code).

                      What I didn't like about Hibernate was the Session management stuff. The only good way to do it in Hibernate is to have the Session controlled by a filter so entities could stay attached as the page renders. And there were other problems. EJB3 + Seam solves all that, and also adds a ton of other cool features. It's just non-trivial to get it set up.

                      What would be great would be a stand-alone application framework file set, that has everything ready to go. All the examples that come with Seam have build.xml files with stuff like include="../../build.xml", which makes them pretty hard to use in a new project.

                      I'm trying to put together a generic app framework that has all the stuff I need, plus login and authorization filters, and the Tomahawk components, and it's stand-alone ready to build. That would be a tremendous help in getting people started on it.
