Sorry, I certainly meant SYNCHRONIZED (not serialized).
[Offtopic: Why can't one edit posts?]
Sorry, I deserved this one.
On the other hand it shows me again that it was not enough to (completely!) read the Seam book by Yuan/Heute.
The online doc covers a lot of topics that the book doesn't.
Seam is moving so fast that books will become outdated quickly. The manual is quite good and there are plenty of examples provided.
This forum is the perfect substitute to the manual and examples.
I prefer cutting edge software and the problems and advantages it brings to older products that have many published books and are not advancing anymore.
I used to use RTM as a less offensive version, but then people got confused as to what it meant, so I switched back ;)
