The Seam framework from JBoss allows developers to use JSF, Facelets, EJB, and JPA to write conversational web applications. But at first they would have to learn how these standard technologies are integrated using Seam, and how they can be built upon using additional Seam components. This book will teach developers just that in order to help them build a Java web application quickly.
This book provides a practical approach to developing Seam applications highlighting good development practices. The reader will understand the fundamentals of Seam and why it is different from many other web frameworks. They will learn to test Seam components and web pages in a Seam application.
Developers will learn how to utilize the RichFaces library to develop advanced, rich user interfaces including AJAX technologies to improve the user experience. By using the Java Persistence API (JPA), they will also learn to develop persistent applications. Users will learn to build conversational web applications that can run over multiple browser windows and secure applications, using role-based security, CAPTCHA, and OpenId.
