Jboss Seam
, one of the most innovative full-stack web application framework in Java EE era.

Letz dive in to the tutorial directly without explaining more about Seam.

In order to develop an enterprise application, one must have
an application server installed locally, which is a big pain
when considering system resource and performance. During the
development period developer always perfer to have his
code-hotdeploy time as short as possible, which rapidly
increases his development and production. But this is not
easily achieved when application servers are used during
development. An alternative is to use web servers which are
very light when compared to Application servers. Seam has a
good support for Tomcat webserver.

This tutorial focuses Seam development under Tomcat webserver without support for EJB, that means Seam with POJO and JPA+Hibernate as Persistence provider.

Main goal of this tutorial is to achieve RAD-Rapid Application Development with Seam, Tomcat and Eclipse.

Requirements for Seam development envirnoment:

Download latest Seam release

Download Tomcat 5.5
 or Tomcat 6
Download latest Eclipse

Download Eclipse-Tomcat-Sysdeo plugin
