JBoss World Berlin 2006 slides on SlideShare

| Comments

I have recently published the slides for Nuxeo’s presentations at JBoss World Berlin on Slideshare,

First one, the business one, was called “Nuxeo - An Open Source ECM Vendor”, and is available here or just below:

The second one, the technical one, was called “Nuxeo EP 5 - A Seam Case Study”, it is also available just below:

Both presentation are also available more traditionnally as PDF here (technical one) and here (both of them)

Stangely, the technical presentation go 8 times as more hits that the business one ;)

Seam 1.1 almost there + insightful interview on InfoQ

| Comments

As everyone should know now, Seam is an important part of our Nuxeo 5 ECM stack.

We are currently using Seam 1.0.1, but it is nice to learn that Seam 1.1 is coming along, and it’s going to be very good.

There is a very nice (like always, on InfoQ) interview of Gavin King, Seam’s creator, that explains in details where Seam is headed (rest assured that Nuxeo 5.1 will include Seam 1.1, but let’s focus on the Nuxeo 5.0 release now ;) ).

Seam 1.1 beta1 released

| Comments

Gavin King has released last week the first beta of JBoss Seam 1.1, but hasn’t made any spectacular announcement for it, besides a post in the JBoss Seam forum.

According to his release notes, the major new features of Seam 1.1 are:

  • The Seam Application Framework for data-oriented applications
  • Asynchronous methods and events
  • Integration of Ajax4JSF for partial page refresh
  • New concurrency model for Ajax-based applications
  • Efficient clustering of Seam-managed extended persistence contexts and JavaBean components
  • Support for atomic conversations
  • Enhanced configuration via components.xml
  • Exception handling via annotations or exceptions.xml
  • Page parameters for RESTful applications
  • Page fragment caching via <s:cache/>
  • “Decoration” of invalid input via <s:decorate/>
  • Themes
  • Support for the Sun JSF 1.2 reference implementation

Michael Yuan, author of the upcoming Prentice Hall Seam Book, also has some comments on the new features.

As developers of the Nuxeo 5 open source ECM platform, which relies heavily on Seam for its web presentation layer, we are both excited by this new release, and curious about other projects (open source or not) that are using the Seam framework.
