Seam 1.1.1 released

Posted by    |       Seam

Seam 1.1.1 is now available for download.

This release fixes several minor bugs, introduces a number of improvements to seam-gen, and adds the following new features:

  • Facelets PDF templates (a JSF tag library for iText)
  • definition of navigation rules via pages.xml
  • Seam Text, a built-in text formatting language for use in blogs, forums and wikis
  • transaction success events
  • several improvements to pages.xml

The most exciting feature is the PDF generation (developed by Norman Richards). It's now super easy to generate PDF from Seam, by writing a simple facelets template. Check out the samples in the examples/pdf directory.

For people building collaboration-oriented websites, Seam Text is a wikitext parser built using an ANTLR grammar. It's totally trivial to display wikitext in your Seam application using <s:formattedText/>. The language itself is nice and flexible - much, much better than the awful wikitext language used by the software that runs this blog. I guess its well past time for to be running on Seam.
