After being a contributor to the pre-JBoss Portal project, Thomas Heute was hired by JBoss Inc. in 2004. He started as a software developer in the JBoss Portal team, and then became the colead of the JBoss Seam project in 2005, with the vision to bring EJB3 closer to JSF. At the end of 2006 Thomas came back to pursue his duty among the JBoss Portal team to work on various tasks.

Compared to other computer books this book is to shallow and does not cover the depths of Seam.
Ragnar Österlund
For a Web user session, this is vital, and it's nice from the text to see state built into Seam, without you having to shoehorn it in.
W Boudville
It's a must read to get a good start with Seam and to learn what WebApp development should have been from the beginning.
Laurent Fournie

Format: Paperback
Yuan and Heute offer the Java programmer a very tempting route away from using the standard Java Enterprise Edition. As they point out, EE version 5 is an uncomfortable mixture of EJBs and JSF. The EJBs exist on the server side and encapsulate business logic. While the JSF is used, also on the server side, as a model-view-controller framework for Web work. In general, separating the MVC from the business logic is correct. But if you have to code EJBs and JSF together, then things get awkward. Code gets verbose and hard to structure.

The book's alternative is Seam, which is meant to be a filler between EJBs and JSF. One nice aspect is that Seam is inherently stateful. For a Web user session, this is vital, and it's nice from the text to see state built into Seam, without you having to shoehorn it in.

Perhaps the most persuasive parts of the book are the code examples. Granted, the authors wrote these to be as concise and elegant as possible. But if you accept that most authors of computer books do this, then you can quickly appreciate the contrast between the code here and comparable code in texts on EJBs and JSF. The latter code examples are much longer and more intricate. The brevity of code writing that Seam affords you can greatly help in two ways. Quicker to write. And quicker to debug.

Having said this, I am undecided about one aspect of the text. Involving what is called "dependency bijection". It is meant as a lightweight way for POJOs to interact with each other. As opposed to using framework interfaces or abstract classes. But the extensive use of interfaces (and abstract classes) has led to the successful development of extensible packages like Eclipse. (And I'm sure readers can cite other examples.) Is it the case that interface implementations do have limitations, perhaps in the context of Web servers and business logic?

I needed to develop a project and fast. I purchased this book because I needed to get Seam up and running quickly. I found it very clearly written: with helpful examples and source code. It also provides a introduction to AJAX and has a few chapter on how to integrate AJAX with JSF and Seam. Very interesting! I recommend this book 100 percent!

Its a great book.. It difficult to learn Seam without this book.
It may be slightly dated, with Seam 2.0 coming out recently.
But per the author, there are not significant changes in the code
ie mainly config changes.
(eg they recommend JPA with tomcat instead of embedded server option
with tomcat)

Seam(and specifically seam-gen) still has some significant bugs/issues
to iron out(but workaround exists).

Format: Paperback
This is a very good book for learning about SEAM, a web framework that I would consider one of the best for its simplicity and power. However, what this book is best at is teaching you the basics of SEAM (though is some areas, such as stateful navigation rules, it doesn't go deep enough).

Where this book lacks most is as a reference book. The reason for this is that many concepts are introduced well before the chapters that talk about them. When looking back at these concepts, I find myself having to find the first place the concept is introduced because the chapter about that assumes that you have read the earlier introduction.

Overall this is a good book for learning the basics of SEAM. However, it is not a good in-depth reference. Nevertheless, SEAM is an excellent technology and there are not yet many good books on it. This book will bring you up to speed on SEAM pretty quickly so I still recommend it.

If your system can not be developed on the most recent technologies and it is a restriction putting him on a J2EE 1.4, this book is for you.

good introduction to jboss seam using a hello world example. this book is perfect for somebody who is a beginner to jboss seam.

On the other hand, for somebody who has already has some experience with jboss seam, this book might not be enough.

For that ones who like to be on cut of the edge, should read it.
Easy to understand and read. Seam is leaving the future choice to be one real and excellent choice for present integrating JSF and EJB 3.x and this book has filled all that I could expect about learn JBoss Seam.
