    Seam 2, any future?

    trind Newbie

      Just wondering if there is any futer on Seam 2.

       

      The development seam very slow. Should my deparment focus on Seam 3 or any other framework instead

      or is there any hope that Seam 2 will get more attention in the future?

       

      for example the JSF-2 support, have taken pretty long and will there be the same delay if any other big libary gets upgraded that seam is dependant on?

          I wish I had a good answer to this.  We can't upgrade to Seam 3 - not backwards compatible with Seam 2 or jboss 5.  So upgrade to jboss 7, which doesn't play nice with Seam 2.  Do all the stuff that's necessary to get ready for Seam 3 and BAM!  Seam 3 will prolly be moving to Apache DeltaSpike and it's anybody's guess if what's left will be supported.

              Hi,

               

              you have everything you need for developing an enterprise application in Seam 2 and trust me you won't need anything else in the next 10 years to upgrade

                The framework can probably work for many years, however i want to use a framework that keeps it self upto date, and the feeling i have at the momemnt around Seam 2 is that there are no focus on it.

                  Geez, that's odd, we've only been using it for 2 years and and we need more already.

                  But I do admire your confidence.

                    Does anyone have information concerning progress on Seam 2.3 (alpha right now) ? In any case, it looks there still *is* life in Seam 2. Seam 3 seams (:) still a bit early to use for work that is expected to go into PROD soon - will try it once a book gets published for it (hear Dan Allen?)

                      I'd like to know your needs if it's possible maybe Seam is already met it

                      The framework can probably work for many years, however i want to use a framework that keeps it self upto date, and the feeling i have at the momemnt around Seam 2 is that there are no focus on it. 

                      JPA inspired by Hibernare, CDI JAVA EE inspired by Seam, JSF 2 inspired by RichFaces ... JBoss really leads Java .. keep yourself up to date maybe you will have reached

                      where Seam is now in next ten years

                        To begin with i want to use JSF 2 with Richface 4, but Seam 2 has just an alfa relase of that?

                         

                        So if you have a guide how i get that working i would realy appreciate it.

                         

                        What i also understand is Seam 2 is hardcoded to Jboss 3.4 or Earlier so you need to use a leagacy driver for Hibernate if you want to use hibernate 3.6 or higher? How will that work when we want to use Hibernate 4?

                          Hi Joachim Andersson,

                           

                          what features r u looking for in JSF 2 and Hibernate 4 that Seam 2(JSF 1.2, Richfaces, Lucene, Hibernate search, JBPM, drools) can not offer to you ?

                          but there are lots of feature in Seam in which you can't have in JSF 2 and Hibernate 4 like  Conversation ,AOP Interceptor , EJB3,.....

                           

                          I have not tested Seam on Jboss AS 7 yet but AFAIK there are tutorials you can use it
