    Integration of Seam Components with JSF

    Keith Pitty Newbie

      Firstly, my apologies if this question is answered elsewhere - I've browsed the Reference Guide and searched the forum without finding the answer yet. I'm relatively new to Seam and am hoping that someone can give me some quick insight.

      So, as I understand it, Seam enables EJB 3.0 components to seamlessly integrate with JSF i.e. no need for beans to be configured in JSF via faces-config.xml. In the Ref Guide in section 9.1.1 (Integrating Seam with JSF and your servlet container) I see that org.jboss.seam.servlet.SeamListener is defined as a listener in web.xml and org.jboss.seam.jsf.SeamPhaseListener is defined as a phase listener for the JSF lifecylce in faces-config.xml.

      So, my question is: how does Seam achieve the seamless integration? Is it via annotations?
