Seam 1 and Seam 2 Requirements

Please read the Requirements FAQ first if you have any questions, this is a quick overview:

  • Seam 2.3.0.Final and later is restructured into Maven multi-module project.
  • Important: You do not need JBoss Application Server to write or deploy Seam applications. See this page for more information on supported application servers and containers. Seam is bundled with a number of useful example applications, many of which do target JBoss AS for out-of-the-box deployment. Some bundled examples have been ported to other application servers and servlet containers, as documented in their README files.
  • For Seam 2.2.x users - Use the latest release 2.2.2.Final, which solves security issue found in JSF EL interpolation.
  • Seam 2.2.1.Final examples run also on JBoss Application Server 6
  • Seam 2.2 examples target JBoss Application Server 5.1.
  • Seam 2.0 and 2.1 examples target JBoss Application Server 4.2 or 5.0.
  • Seam 1.2 examples target JBoss 4.0, which must be installed using the JEMS installer with the ejb3 or ejb3-clustering profile.
  • JDK 5.0 is required for all Seam releases. Seam has been also tested on JDK 6.0 (check this page for updates).

To get started with Seam after you downloaded it, please follow the Getting Started guidelines.

Seam 2.3 in Maven

Seam 2 is available from the JBoss Maven 2 repository:

  • Group Id: org.jboss.seam
  • Artifact Ids: jboss-seam, jboss-seam-ui, jboss-seam-remoting, jboss-seam-ioc, jboss-seam-pdf, jboss-seam-mail, jboss-seam-debug, jboss-seam-excel, jboss-seam-rss, jboss-seam-wicket, jboss-seam-resteasy

From user point of view, you should use org.jboss.seam:bom:2.3.0.Final to get easier startup for seam artifacts, which are managed by Seam Bill of Material (BOM).

You can also find unstable nightly builds on the JBoss Maven 2 snapshot repository.

Seam 2 Github Repository

Seam is located in the Seam 2 Github Repository. Seam 2 is a organized as a single project (thus one repository), built using Ant or Maven for in case of Seam 2.3. If you are looking for Seam 3, refer to the Seam 3 check out and build page page for instructions.

Building Seam 2.3

You need an install of Maven 3.0.x and set up additional Maven repository like we have in settings.xml or just copy build/settings.xml to your local Maven user home - user_home/.m2/

To build Seam from github, just run mvn clean install .

Building Seam 2

You need a full install of ant 1.7.0. Some linux distributions only supply a partial installation of ant which will make the build fail. If so, make sure ant-nodeps.jar is on the classpath.

To build Seam from github, just run ant build in seam/. You'll find the built artifacts and current set of libraries in jboss-seam/lib.
