    Suggest Seam with Icefaces

    Object kk Newbie

      Hello,

      I have a web serives application which has no user interface. The only way to interact with that application is through xml files.

      So now I wanted to develop a UI for that application. I selected IceFaces for this since it is the best opensource Ajaxified Server faces avaiable.

      I heard about Seam, that it has an integration with IceFaces and let the developement much easier.

      According to this link http://support.icesoft.com/jive/entry.jspa?entryID=773&categoryID=80

      It is possible to run IceFaces applications on Websphere Application Server (WAS).

      My Question is, can I run IceFaces applications developed with Seam on WAS ?

      I do not need any more facilities than UI developement support. I do not need EJB 3 since I have to use webservices to communicate with the database.

      can I decide which module I want to use in Seam ?

      can I just use IceFaces support for UI and leave all other modules ? will it run on WAS ?

      I appreciate any suggestions.

      Thank You.

          Ask on the icefaces forum

          My Question is, can I run IceFaces applications developed with Seam on WAS ?


          We don't have an example for this, but I expect the answer to be the same as to the first q.

          can I decide which module I want to use in Seam ?


          Yes, see for example the JPA or hibernate examples which run without EJB3

          can I just use IceFaces support for UI and leave all other modules ? will it run on WAS ?


          If you just want Icefaces, then don't use Seam ;)

            I appreciate your reply.

            I contacted IceFaces people and enquired about the same.

            Finally all I understood is ... use seam when it is really necessary and worth spending time to learn using it ...

            thank you. have nice weekend.
