    Enhancing seam-gen to support multiple projects

    Devon Hillard Novice

      I am usually work on more than one project at a time. A couple existing applications in maintenance mode, a couple projects under development, and maybe a project or two to test something out in. Since seam-gen does not support that out of the box, and in fact I've seen people suggest that you should have a separate Seam download/installation for each project you want to use seam-gen with, I've made a couple of small changes to seam-gen which support setting up, creating, and working with, multiple projects. You can run 'seam setup' to setup project1, then run 'seam project1 new-project' to create the project, then run 'seam setup' to setup project2, then run 'seam project1 new-form' to create a new form in project1, then run 'seam project2 new-project', and so on.

      Anyhow, I think it is very useful, although it's currently missing the enhanced Windows seam.bat (as I don't have a Windows machine to test it on), and an ant task to list the available project (which is a nice to have).

      I'd like to get the opinions of the group, and ask how I would go about getting my changes, or at least the feature, moved into the product.
