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
