Seam in Action promotion at JavaRanch

August 06, 2008

In the midst of the final countdown to the publication of Seam in Action, I will be answering questions about the book, and Seam in general, on the JavaRanch forums. Ask a question and enter to win a copy of the book. Better yet, just stop on by to say "Hi!" and pick my brain about Seam.

Here's the official announcement:

We are thrilled to have Dan Allen on the ranch to promote the book "Seam in Action". The promotion will be held in the Application Frameworks forum which can be found here:

Participate in this week's giveaway by asking Dan Allen a question or two and you may win a copy of the book!

The giveaway starts on Tuesday, August 5th 2008.
The drawing will be held on Friday, August 8th 2008.

See you at the ranch! And wish me luck on finishing the book. I'll need it!

If you could postpone the book printing for one or two months and include some features of Seam 2.1 (e.g. GWT, single sign-on support ...), it would benefit all of us.

I have a early version of the e-book and there are some chapters that cover the new features of 2.1.

As @Andre points out, this stuff is already covered in the book. GWT integration has been part of Seam since 2.0 and I just updated the security chapter to cover the identity management and permissions modules. I also am sure to identify throughout the book when something has changed in Seam 2.1.

With that said, the "official" version of Seam that the source code aligns with is 2.0.3.GA.

Thanks everyone for participating! I think we had a very successful session and I had lots of fun ranting and raving about Seam and Java EE. I hope you did to.
