    To Seam or not to Seam

    Ulises Fasoli Newbie

      Hi All,
             A while ago I bought Dan Allen's Seam in action book because I was looking for a framework having a lot of the Ruby on Rails or Php Symfony frameworks, saddly due to lack of time I couldn't give it a test drive.


      For a few weeks now I have been playing around with Java EE6 and specially JSF2.0, which I think have a lot of advantages (compared to JSF 1.2), but the thing is I still want to give Seam a try.


      As I'm about to start a new project I was wondering if someone could give me some input on this matter :


            - Is it possible to run Seam 2.X on a Glassfish 3 server ( since there are other projects running on this server I cannot have another one) ?


            - Would it be better to wait for Seam 3 ?


            - Is there a reason for me to use Seam 2.X (besides the fact that it's a cool framework and mere curiosity) instead of the EJB 3.1, JPA 2, JSF 2.0 stack?




      Thanks in advance, and my apologies if this seems a silly question
