Thanks for your suggestive reply!

Yes, I can resolve all problems listed above through all kinds of methods.
But why cann't JBossTool do as well as netbeans about Seam-plugin???
How can i persuade those seam-freshers and my boss to use Seam?
They agree that Seam is good, but will not use it. They still use struts/JSF.

Netbeans 5.5' Seam-Plug in is really wonderful!!! But netbeans allways die without any reason. I give it enough memory! This plug-in cann't be used in NetBeans 6.0. And new seam-plugin for netbeans cann't be found.
And my team use Eclipse and refuses to use netbeans!!! And...my lovely seam cann't be accept by my boss!

Now, i use Seam combining Ant to develop little project for my friend. That's enough for me.

Maybe many months later, good seam-related tool will be developed for us. I will try to persuade my boss to use Seam again.
