15 Best JBoss Seam Tutorials

JBoss Seam is a web application framework for Java EE 5, developed by JBoss. It uses two proven Java frameworks: EJB3 and JSF, by using these you can easily access any back-end EJB component from the front-end by addressing it by its Seam component name. Seam introduces the concept of contexts. Each seam component exists within a context. The conversation context for example captures all actions of a user until he logs out or closes the browser - even multiple uses of the browser back-button. You can automatically generate a CRUD (create-read-update-delete) web application from an existing database using seam-gen, a command line tool. Seam unifies the component models of JSF and EJB3, eliminating glue code, and letting the developer think about the business problem. Seam supports two open source JSF-based AJAX solutions: ICEfaces and Ajax4JSF. These solutions let you add AJAX capability to your user interface without the need to write any JavaScript code. Seam also provides a built-in JavaScript remoting layer for EJB3 components. AJAX clients can easily call server-side components and subscribe to JMS topics, without the need for an intermediate action layer. Neither of these approaches would work well, were it not for Seam's built-in concurrency and state management, which ensures that many concurrent fine-grained, asynchronous AJAX requests are handled safely and efficiently on the server side.

On August 13, last month, Red Hat released the beta version of its Developer Studio, an Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) to assist developers migrate to and exploit open source runtimes, frameworks and stacks. Among the benefits of this  new IDE  are:

  1. A unified programming model with new tools around JBoss Seam to build applications in a single, consistent manner.
  2. An integrated Ajax development environment with JBoss Seam and JBoss Ajax4sf frameworks, JBoss Richfaces components and WYSIWYG tools for creating Ajax-enabled Web pages and interfaces.

The following are what I consider to be the 15 Best JBoss Seam Tutorials and Documentation sites available on the web today. These will help you learn and start using this web application framework from JBoss and Red Hat.


JBoss Seam Tutorial: Part 1
This is a simple step-by-step tutorial by Manuel Palacio. He demonstrates how to develop a web application (an addressbook) using Seam. He teaches some of the main concepts and features of the Seam framework, such as:

8) Question of the Month about Technical Training:

Each month Jeff Love will answer a current or important question that we have received about computer and IT training and career development.


September 2007 Question of the Month: 

With the popular, enterprise enabled performance testing tools being too expensive for small and medium businesses, are there any inexpensive, or even free, Performance Testing tools available?

Answer:
Yes, here is one free and one very low cost performance testing solution from which you can evaluate and use, if your needs are met.

1) You can perform Web Load and stress testing for no cost using the free HTTP performance test application, OpenSTA. This tool is a distributed software testing architecture designed around CORBA. It has the ability to run scripted HTTP and HTTPS heavy load tests with performance measurements on the  Windows 32 bit platforms.

2) AnalyzeWeb, from Enchantedgoods.com, offers many of the sought-after features of more expensive performance tools, such as: multiple programmable HTTP clients using either HTTP or HTTPS; the ability to access a list of URLs (with either GET or POST requests); start all clients at once or staggered; and the the ability to track individual resource statistics such as average response times (in the table view) and to view response time performace of each resource over time graphically in real-time. AnalyzeWeb does website load testing, performance analysis, slow page determination, website monitoring, and content change detection all in one inexpensive ($49.95 for single user to $349.95 for unlimited users) yet easy to use solution.

Also, here are some good slides on Hands-on Network Performance Testing that cover networking performance tesitng using open source or free tools, such asTraceroute, Iperf, Tcpdump, Tcptrace, BWCTL, NDT, OWAMP, AMP, Advisor, Thrulay, Web100, MonaLisa, pathchar, NPAD Pathdiag, Surveyor, Ethereal, CoralReef, MRTG, Skitter, Cflowd, Cricket, and Net100. Just put any of these names into google to find out more about it.

I hopes this help you.
