Thanks. But only 5 or 6 Seam projects are listed that way. What about the other 15 examples that come with Seam? There must be a way to successfully load those in Eclipse. Hmmm.
These examples does not follow a structure that is easily loaded into Eclipse (nor many other IDE's I know) you have to do it manually.
I.e. using Create new java project and then point to the root of the example you want to use.
Thanks, Max. I've had great difficulty manually creating these apps in Eclipse, so I've left Seam alone for now and am focusing on learning JSF/RichFaces. Seam is powerful, but as is the case with power, it's also a complex beast to tackle.
If you would like to have some of Seam examples added to the Project Examples wizard, we can try to add them.
Thanks, snjeza. After having pulled my hair out for more than a month, I'm giving up on Seam... for now. Haven't been able to make any headway with it. I've found tutorials, try to implement them in Eclipse as a new Seam Project, get to a certain point, and have 10,000 Java exceptions thrown in my face.
This is true of the tutorial here: http://docs.jboss.com/seam/latest/reference/en-US/html/tutorial.html
Got the Registration example working by building it manually in Eclipse using the JBoss Tools. Couldn't find a way to import it successfully and run it.
The app worked for one day. Came back the next day, added another project, now the Registration project was choking too. Hadn't even touched it. It worked one day, not the next. Very brittle technology, and that's why I'm not going to use it right now. Going with JSF and AJAX. That's sufficiently painful.
Someday Seam will be an easy-to-use, pain-free tech, but not right now. It got so bad, I even thought about quitting this job and going back to the dreaded .NET world! I think if I get my Ph.D. in computer science along with some post doctoral research, have a dozen Red Hat consultants sitting next to me, I might actually be able to get Seam to work. In the meantime, I need to get some actual work done before they fire me.
