    Myfaces Fusion proposal

    Carsten Hoehne Master

      Hello,
      i found this proposal in the myfaces wiki.http://wiki.apache.org/myfaces/ApacheMyFacesFusion
      Are they reinvent the wheel or is this totally different from what i have with seam?
      Ciao,
      Carsten

          Same holds for this one.

          Perhaps Seam needs some advertising.
          Or, on the other hand, people tend to NOT use software they don't have invented:-(
          Diversity could be good, but it splits development efforts in different directions.

            Well the first one is like half of the very very first version of Seam. We started using the term "conversation" a few years ago, so it's a copy of that concept with a planned minimalist implementation. I don't think this has a good chance of success, this is like the "let's simply map a resultset to objects" approach to object/relational mapping. You need more immediately.

            The second one is the same as the Seam application framework, from a high-level perspective.

              Hee, as long as they follow JSR-299, I have no objections... Apache is a member of the expert group... so...

                Yes, Apache is part of the JSR-299. Inside of Apache there is more than *only* the MyFaces fusion proposal. There is Shale, there is Trinidad etc.

                Personally I think that an impl of that spec will be hosted at Apache Shale, when it really comes to an Apache impl. Stuff like Fusion's concepts (good or not) are valid for input as well.

                Also I don't think that Seam will a 1:1 mapping to the upcoming spec (like struts wasn't a 1:1 mapping for faces).

                Thanks!
