I would like to formally announce that JAVAWUG (Java Web User Group) is holding the Thirty Sixth Birds-of-Feather (Meet-up 36) at Sun CBC on Wednesday, 16th April 2008 from 18:45 until 20:15.

Seam is an open source "deep integration" framework that tries to have the best of both the Java EE and Spring worlds. Seam is firmly rooted in Java EE standards. It started out to address the design flaws between two key Java EE frameworks: JSF and EJB3. Some of its core features are being adopted in future official Java EE standards such as JSF 2.0 and WebBeans. As more and more users start to adopt Seam, it has expanded far beyond the scope of Java EE.

This talk will start with a brief on Java Server Faces, EJB 3.0, AJAX, Remoting then an introduction on Seam,

- What is Seam, The contextual component model, State management, ...

- What advantage you have by using Seam in your project.

- It's time to deprecate the Stateless Web Application !!
