It's not like this stuff needs to be deeply integrated into the Seam core, its just an add-on jar, no big deal. That doesn't count as bloat, IMO.

The trouble is that reporting tools like these are kindof a world unto themselves, and its difficult to seamlessly integrate their capabilities into the flow and look and feel of your application. Plus its a totally alien programming model to learn. (Usually, done by some "reporting guy" on the project.) I think its highly useful to have some limited set of reporting capabilities available in the web framework.

Thanks genman, your help is greatly appreciated.
Answer to question 1 is great. I have actually picked up this book now. I think it will be a great resource to getting JBoss implemented for our application.
Regarding your answer to my second question, I am actually more concerned about deploying my app.war file. Tomcat supports hot deploy, but when that happens I lose my sessions with the client. I am trying to determine if JBoss allows me to deploy my app.war without the current users who have established sessions with my old app.war losing their session and being booted to the log in screen as if they have not been authenticated. Currently we have an authentication test on each page that validates that a user has been authenticated. This is stored in a session.
Any ideas anyone?
