seamgen in Seam 3

Arbi Sookazian Master

is there a prototype or similar available for Seam 3 seamgen with maven?  I'm interested as my current project is using Maven 2.x with m2e plugin in Eclipse.

    also, what about support for parent POMs and grandparent POMs for setting up a hierarchical structure like we have on our current project.


    we actually have two Seam 2.x projects that use the same common POM for a lot of libraries like RichFaces, Apache Commons, etc. that are popular and shared.


    Maven Super POM --> Common POM --> Parent POM --> module POM


    Also will it include the maven-cli-plugin (which is now a JBoss product???) as well as integration with m2e which is not supporting WTP unfortunately and seems to be buggy with 0.9.8 and 0.10.0.


    One thing I hate about m2e is the auto builds it does for all the Maven module POMs in our project (10 or so per parent POM) and you have to disable that per POM.  Really slows down your Eclipse dev experience...


    But JBT lead Max Andersen has recommended using m2e and not using mvn eclipse:eclipse.


    I haven't heard too much about what is going on right now with seamgen and Maven stuff....

    There are some maven archetypes for Weld/CDI (Seam 3 are just modules on top of CDI) here http://seamframework.org/Documentation/WeldQuickstartForMavenUsers


    I used their skeletons to learn about the dependencies to build my own multi-project pom.xml. I just used the standard maven ear, war, ejb plugins for packaging.


    However, I still find maven a PITA for anything but the most basic lifecycles. Creating an exploded ear requires you to write a plugin! That's why I'm learning to use something saner, like Gradle.
