Last Thursday I had an opportunity to sit down with Dan Allen and talk about the Seam Framework. Dan was a great resource for learning about Seam. This is the first of a two-part interview, where we focus on the Seam framework itself, how it differs from Spring and other frameworks, and how it marries JSF and POJO as well as EJB components, providing a stateful view of the world and making programming easier for APIs such as Java Persistence.
His upcoming talk at the Philadelphia Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise conference on March 27th covers implementing Security in Seam. Dan is the author of Manning’s book, Seam In Action, which can be purchased in paper or PDF form. He recently became a Red-Hatter, which he blogs about at his blog/website, www.mojavelinux.com. You can also find him on in.relation.to, a blog site running on JBoss Seam that covers topics such as Seam, JBoss Tools, WebBeans, Eclipse, and RichFaces. His twitter ID is #mojavelinux.
