Further notes on the 1st post..
1 - googling problem 1 I saw comments that SEAM 2.0 won't run on JBOSS AS 5.1. You need SEAM >= 2.1. Is this true or false? Maybe that is a problem
but as noted previously the seam project wizard rejects the SEAM 2.2 version.
"The ant script uses the task to build the war file - should it use the ant task instead? " should read
"The ant script uses the jar task to build the war file - should it use the war task instead?"
Further info - same issue occurs with SEAM 2.1.2
