New and revised modules in JBoss Seam 3.1
Version 3.1 of the JBoss Seam Java EE web framework has been released. In the announcement, project lead Shane Bryzak mainly highlights the changes since version 3.0, which was released in April 2011. For example, the Solder module now includes the Seam Catch exception handling framework, the Seam Config XML configuration technology and Seam Servlet for servlet integration. Seam Transaction, formerly a part of Seam Persistence, is now available as a separate module that provides transaction-related features for POJO-based Java Beans.
New modules include Seam Social for integrating social networks such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, Seam Reports for incorporating various reporting engines, and Seam JCR for interacting with Java Content Repositories. Also new are the Seam Spring, Seam JMS and Seam Mail modules. Additionally, the developers fixed almost 250 known problems.
Seam 3.1 is available to download from SourceForge and is published under the terms of the LGPL.
