Not to say that you don't have some points which are worth considering, but
this (weld-dev, seam-dev) really isn't the right place for discussion about
product offerings. This would be more appropriate on the forums or even on
the more general JBoss forums where people actually have a say in where
these stacks are defined. Because as you pointed out, this has nothing to do
Thanks for understanding.

As if EE6 wasn't novel and confusing enough with the change of
Web Beans to CDI, EJB Lite and new web/full profiles concept, etc. Now we
have some presumably new product offerings from JBoss:
This one comes from out of nowhere: GWT, RichFaces, Struts, Spring, but no
Seam. No Seam. And I thought that RichFaces was an AJAX component library
for JSF. But no mention of JSF in the datasheet. Fantastic.
Oh but wait....
"Along with leading JBoss technologies Hibernate and Seam,
JBoss Web Framework Kit will be included in Red Hat Java
Enterprise Edition application server solutions, JBoss
Enterprise Application Platform and JBoss Enterprise Web
Platform to provide a complete, integrated environment
that supports any type of Java application. For deployments
that use the Apache Tomcat component of JBoss
Enterprise Web Server, JBoss Web Framework Kit can be
easily added to help round out any lightweight Java application
I thought EJB Lite and web profile in EE6 was "lightweight", no? Or not
"light" enough? Because Tomcat starts up so fast.
So is JBoss/Redhat trying to gobble up some of SpringSource's customers and
market share and thus boost revenue?
Seam can integrate with Spring as was shown in SiA book. So why isn't Seam
included in this new JBoss WFK?
And does Redhat JEE app server mean JBoss 6 AS? And if yes, does that mean
JBoss 6 includes this WFK? Is it available in the current AS 6.0.0.M1
