    New ANNOUNCE:  Daniel Hinojosa talks about Pitfalls and Testing with JBoss SeamTopic

    Kito Mann Newbie

      In this podcast, JSFCentral editor-in-chief Kito D. Mann talks with Daniel Hinojosa about testing JBoss Seam applications from the bottom up, and Seam pitfalls. This interview was recorded in September of 2008 at the JSF Summit, formerly called JSFOne, in Vienna, Virginia. Here is an excerpt:

      Kito: Okay. So I imagine there are probably at least two different approaches to using Seam-gen. One would be where you use Seam-gen once, create the scaffolding for the application, and then work normally off the top of it. Another option would be to use Seam-gen, then make some changes, regenerate, make some changes, regenerate, etc. Have you tried both methods before?

      Daniel: I have tried both and I ended up just – because it provides three basic folders for you: model, action, and test -- and I just use my id to create the classes out of there. Seam-gen offers your “create entity,” “create action,” and different kinds of things very much like Rails or Grails has. I have used those at first but then I ended up creating a new class, because from there I kind of know what I want. You can take different approaches with that. The value of that whole Seam-gen, I think, is in that whole build XML file.
