This talk reintroduces Seam as a portable, modular and type-safe framework built atop JSR-299: Contexts and Dependency Injection for the Java EE platform (CDI). We'll look at how and why Seam 2 evolved into CDI. You'll be taken on a brief tour of the CDI programming model, learn about it's relationship to EJB 3.1 and JSF 2.0 and discover how it unifies, enhances and extends the Java EE platform. We'll briefly visit Weld, the JSR-299 Reference Implementation, before looking ahead to Seam 3. You'll discover how Seam 3 is layered on this new foundation as a set of portable CDI extensions, offered as individual artifacts or stack releases. We'll wrap up the show with some demos that showcase the productivity this stack of technologies provides you.
