Seam or not to seam
Today is a titan worker day. Karwer and I have killed nearly all tasks in 1.9.2.
For long time I waited for Seam exploration. I read Jacek fights with seam and application servers. He provides simple seam 5 minutes tutorial startup.
4. Unzip seam.
5. Run seam setup
6. create project seam
7. Run JBoss AS and you’re done.
After that you have:
* project structure with ant build.xml
* EJB 3.0
* TestNG with JBoss Embeddable EJB3
* JSF template
* Database (HSQL) integration
* You have simple login form (which works)
Directory structure, I’m disappointed, because it’s no maven like. You have netbeans project, if you use eclipse or idea you have got a problem. It’s ant, so you have 32M lib directory.
I think than seam wants to show that he can generate more than RoR (by the way, django way 😉 ).
So seam guys suggested use netbeans, no problem. Downloaded, installed and … everything is fine. Netbeans is better and better. Maybe it’s time to look closer on it. We’ll see. I going back to seam.
