    Seam 1.1 on WebLogic 9

    Christian Schneider Newbie

      Hello Seam/JBoss-Team,

      I'm interested in the deployment and integration details of running Seam applications within WebLogic 9.

      How far is the integration between the application's Seam runtime and the WebLogic server?

      Can a WL-deployed Seam application use any WL-Resources such as DataSource/ConnectionPool/JNDI/JMS-Queue/etc. from the WL server? Or (for example) do I have to configure the DB connection settings within the application's Seam configuration, separate from the WL configuration?

      I assume that I don't have to change/adjust any (global) configuration of the WL server when deploying a Seam-based application (aside from the regular application deployment process), since it is just a "plain-vanilla" J2EE app from the deployment point of view. Is that correct?

      Also are there any points where the application development with Seam is constrained when targeting the WL 9 platform for a deployment?

      Best Regards,
      Christian

          Sure, ofcourse!

          Right, its just a WAR.

          You can't use EJB3.


          Have you looked at the examples yet? the "jpa" and "hibernate2" examples both deploy on WL.

            Just to clarify, you can use EJB3 entity beans and EntityManager in WL 9. Just not EJB3 session beans -- you use Seam POJOs instead. Again, it is demonstrated in the "jpa" example.
