I have not heard from anyone if there is an existing ticket for the demos so I opened a new one.  Here is the email and ticket information:

Thank you,


The seam demos on the "http://www.jboss.com/docs/demos" page need to be
removed or replaced with a html page saying "Please see
http://seamframework.org/Documentation/GettingStarted for details and
instructions on running the Seam demos". The demos are running old
versions of Seam and JBoss AS, and also require other maintenance that
we do not have access to.

This applies to the Seam DVD store and Seam booking example. The Seam
tools demos have more to do with JBDS - I have copied Max Andersen on
this email as he is the JBDS lead and may have comments as well.

I am not aware of one - if it has not been done - I can work on it.

Do we have a ticket with IT to get the demos removed and replaced with
a html page saying "Unavailable, please follow the getting started
instructions to run this demo"?

If so, what number is it?
