  • Focusses on 3 key areas of development with Seam – testing, persistence and security
  • Test your site to ensure efficiency 
  • Learn how to develop persistent applications 
  • Secure your web application with user authentication and OpenID.

Who This Book Is For

This book is for Java EE application developers who have a Seam web application set up and ready to go, and are looking for information on the key areas of Seam that this book covers.  

You will need a basic understanding of Java EE and also to be aware of EJB3, although you do not need to know it in any detail. Experience with JBoss AS would be great, but all you really need is to be comfortable using any application server. Knowledge of AJAX and JavaScript would also be beneficial, although it is not necessary.

Table of Contents

What You Will Learn

  • Test all aspects of your Seam application including the web pages and components
  • Develop persistent applications using the Java Persistence API (JPA)
  • Secure applications using role-based security, CAPTCHA, and OpenID
  • Create a logon form and an authenticator to ensure your site’s security from bogus users
  • Discover the Seam identity manager API
  • Configure your application to support OpenID 

In Detail

The Seam framework from JBoss allows developers to use JSF, Facelets, EJB, and JPA to write conversational web applications. Testing, securing, and database persistence are the most important topics to learn if you want an application that runs quickly, efficiently and securely.

Seam 2 Web Development LITE provides a practical approach to developing Seam applications highlighting good development practices. The book zooms in on specific topics of Seam development: database persistence, component testing, and user authentication.
