We are in the process of migrating a complex application written in Coldfusion to J2EE. My company has a vision of moving the apps to Jboss + RHL platform. We choose Jboss seam as our web framework.
As the first step we want to first start with doing the new functionalities (Completely new enhancements) in Jboss seam and integrate this with the existing coldfusion app.
Coldfusion MX runs in Jboss and java apps can happily share session across. So with conventional jsp model + frames I can work this out by floating the session across coldfusion and jsp. We have done a POC and this works.
I think idea behind seam was to move out of explicit session handling.
But still is there anyway I can access the HttpSession to float the state across coldfusion and Jboss Seam application.
