    cannot find jboss-seam.jar file (plea for help!)

    Tanya Ruttenberg Expert

      I'm sure this is must be a simple question. Hopefully.

      I have Eclipse 3.4
      I installed JBoss Tools Alpha1 3.0.0 including SeamTools feature. Forgive the ignorant question, but is this the same as jboss-seam-2.1.0.GA? I downloaded jboss-seam-2.1.0.GA separately in my quest for a jboss-seam.jar file.

      The problem I ran into is that when I created a Seam Project in eclipse, I got to the point of having to create a "Seam Runtime" in the Seam facet dialog box. I was unable to do se because I could not locate a jboss-seam.jar file. I gather this is an important file. :-) I searched my entire C drive and it was not there. So I downloaded "Seam" separately in the form of jboss-seam-2.1.0.GA.

      I am normally quick at picking up new technologies, but I have been stymied in trying to to get my head around this Java/IDE/Seam/etc. etc. alphabet soup. I come from a sys admin perl/cgi background and I'm finding the learning curve to be a bit much here.

      If there is anyone out there willing to exchange private email to answer a raft of dumb questions for a day or so, as I work to understand this, I'd be most appreciative. Please feel free to do so as well as responding to this posting about the elusize jboss-seam.jar file.

      I just really want to understand thoroughly how this all works.

      Thanks.
