Stuart Douglas updated JBSEAM-3119:

    Attachment: multi-war-appname1.diff

I have created a patch based on the application name approach I mentioned earlier (multi-war-appname1.diff). 

Each war in a multi-war seam app should specify a unique application name in the context param 'org.jboss.seam.applicationName'.

Lifecycle.application now stores a static HashMap<String,Map<String,Object>>

ServletLifecycle.servletContext is now a HashMap<String,ServletContext>

All methods that used these statics now take the application name parameter. The original methods have been kept as delegates to newMethod(null) . This means single war apps will not be affected by the api change. 

The application name is placed into the Application Context under the key 'org.jboss.seam.applicationName'. The lifecycle class contains a convenience method Lifecycle.getApplicationName() that retrieves it.

I would appreciate it if a core seam dev could have a look at it and give me some feedback. I have been thinking about this for a while and I think that the application name approach is the only one that makes sense. Without this there is no way for external users of seam components (such as spring) to specify which application they are actually interested in.

Still to do:

Message driven beans do not work properly, they will always run in the context of the application with a null name. I think the best we can do where is add an annotation to specify the application context that we want the bean to be invoked in. In practice I don't think this is a big issue.

Spring integration does not work properly in a multi-war app. It is only possible to inject components from the application with a null name. This should be fairly easy to fix by adding an applicationName parameter to the seam:instance namespace handler, but I do not really know enough about spring.

Documentation - I am prepared to do this if the patch is accepted

Writing Tests

Lots of testing - This is a fairly invasive patch, and it would be good if people with multi war projects could take it for a spin and see if there are any problems

Creating an example application

> Create an example of two seam WAR applications inside of an EAR.  There has been quite a bit of forum traffic on the subject and it would be good to nail down an example and document.  There may also be errors and other issue that need to be worked out.
> An admin console type application to the standard booking application may be a good way to go.  It would be a real world/useful example.
