Dan Allen is the author of Seam in
Action, the comprehensive guide to the
Seam framework. After completing his book, Dan now works at JBoss by Red Hat as
a Principal Software Engineer to work full-time on on Seam, Weld, and
Arquillian. Dan is a passionate open source advocate who enjoys speaking about,
hacking on, and discussing Java EE frameworks and technologies.
Infinispan and Seam are doing it again. We're hosting a community social in the midst of Europe's premier Java conference, Devoxx (in Antwerp, Belgium). This year we'll be joined by Arquillian to keep things under control (you don't want to make Ike mad).
The JPA 2 metamodel is the cornerstone of type-safe criteria queries in JPA 2. The generated classes allow you to refer to entity properties using static field references, instead of strings. (A metamodel class is the fully-qualified class name of the entity class it matches followed by an underscore (_)).
Cool software projects have cool logos. We recently announced an alpha release of Arquillian, a project that's going to revolutionize Java EE integration testing. Now we need to make Arquillian cool :)
As promised, we're happy to announce another early release of a Seam 3 module, Seam XML 3.0.0 Alpha 1. The Seam XML module, contributed and led by Stuart Douglas, is a CDI portable extension that allows you to add, modify and extend CDI-discovered beans using XML as an alternative to annotations.
