I am leading the CDI 1.1 specification, and work on JBoss Developer Framework, a set of tutorials and examples for all JBoss users. Previously, I've worked on Infinispan and I led the Seam and Weld projects, and am a founder of the Arquillian project. I've worked on a number of specifications including JSF 2.0, AtInject and Java EE 7. I am a regular speaker at JUGs and conferences such as JavaOne, Devoxx, JAX, JavaBlend, JSFDays, JBoss World, Red Hat Developer Day and JUDCon. I am currently employed by Red Hat Inc. working on JBoss open source projects. Before working for Red Hat, I used and contributed to Seam whilst working at a UK based staffing agency as IT Development Manager.
On Monday afternoon I will be talking about Seam and Web Beans at the UK JBoss User Group in London.
I'm pleased to say we have released Seam 2.0.2.GA.
I'll highlight a few of my favourite features of Seam 2, then go on to discuss how where Seam will go over next year, and finally introduce Web Beans.
Well, I'm safely home after my first JBossWorld, and I wanted to share some of the highlights for Seam at JBossWorld Orlando - lots of presentations about Seam, and more on RichFaces, Hibernate, Tools etc.
I learnt a lot about JBoss Tools whilst writing a quick demo for my talk at Javapolis, and I wanted share a favourite feature with you - hot deploy of Seam components. Now, of course, this works with any seam problems if you set it up right, but JBoss Tools makes it /seamless/ :-). It removes the need for calling out to ant to copy the files to the application server - this makes it so quick you don't even see the progress bar pop up!
