Web Development Framework - SEAM

Published on December 17, 2007

For those who are interested in picking up an enterprise web development framework, you may want to try JBoss Seam. It is a fairly new framework (about 1+ year) and claims to be the first framework for EJB 3.0.

I have just gone through a 1 day quick tutorial course, and it seems to be a good framework, having an fulfilling the agile and ROR-like programming aspect. But there is a lot to learn and get use to. At the end of the day, our hands-on objectives is still to hard for newbie -.0

Some features of Seam are:

  • Use of POJO - Pain Old Java Object
  • Little xml configuration files. It makes use of @Annotations instead.
  • Configure for pageflow
  • Integrate technologies such as EJB3, JSF, Ajax4JSF etc
