Random bits of information by a developer
23 October 2008
For those using Seam, you've probably seen the announcement that Seam 2.1.0.GA has been released. Work continues at a fast pace for Seam 2.1.1. Dan Allen (Seam in Action author) and I have been working on generating the IDEA IntelliJ module and project files for IntelliJ 8 aka Diana, which has Seam support (check out their screen cast detailing the support, I think you'll be impressed). The initial versions were just checked in yesterday. The next time you run seam create-project you will have Eclipse, Netbeans and IntelliJ project files. For those that wish to tweak the iml and ipr file they're in the seam-gen/ide-project-files/idea directory. Dan continues to work on seam-gen so stay tuned for more announcements. There are a couple of minor issues with it, but nothing an experienced IntelliJ user can't deal with (like XSDs for the namespaces in the XHTML pages, setting up the correct JDK, tying together the JPA files with a Datasource, etc). Please download trunk and let us know! Feel free to leave comments on the JIRA issue.
