    Seam + IceFaces

    Tony Herstell Master

      Is is likely that RedHat/JBoss would buy/absorb IceFaces to add them to the stack that they support?

      The supportable stack for Seam is already outstripping JBoss AS now with support for WebSphere and others.

      A lot of companies want "one throat to throttle" when incorporating stacks.

      Advantages:

      Huge experience in JBoss (Seam) team of managing Open Source Apps (many open source developers have offered to help with iceFaces but are they being utilised yet?)

      Already IceFaces / Seam have a close relationship (see point above!).

      One Stop Shop for training for Web2 Apps.

      One $$commercial$$ support contract for using a typical stack like:
      Linux Server Running Red Hat (or equiv).
      Some DBase server (MySql?)
      JBoss (or other supported) Application Server (cluster)
      Seam App(s) (inc. Spring Legacy code) .

      One Forum (with bug tracking)
