Did you look at Seam ?

"JBoss Seam is a powerful new application framework to build next
generation Web 2.0 applications by unifying and integrating popular service
oriented architecture (SOA) technologies like Asynchronous JavaScript and
XML(AJAX), Java Server Faces(JSF), Enterprise Java Beans(EJB3), Java
Portlets and Business Process Management(BPM) and workflow.

Seam applications can be deployed on Tomcat.

Q: Can I run Seam outside of JBoss AS?

A: Yes, you can run Seam applications in plain Tomcat 5.5+ or in the Sun
GlassFish application server. To run Seam application in Tomcat, you need a
number of additional library files and a few configuration files to
bootstrap the JBoss EJB3 inside Tomcat. Please refer to the tomcat ANT
build target for the Seam booking example (in the examples/booking
directory of the Seam distribution) for more on how to build a Tomcat WAR
for Seam applications. Refer to this blog post on how to run Seam in Sun's
Glassfish application server.

Hope this helps.

With Best Regards

We're heavy TC 5.x users with lots of sucessfull production cases in Brazil
using Hibernate, Struts and others OSS (after bad EJB 2.x experiences like
many companies)...

But now with EJB 3.0 and JSF 1.2 - and lots of improvements in the JEE
specification - we'll have to migrate to a JEE 5 environment.

Our questions are:

Will Tomcat 6.0 really support JSF 1.2 and JSP 2.1? If so, is there any

We know that Sun is promoting Glassfish also as servlet/jsp reference and
that Craig McClanahan is also commited with that... what can we expected
from Tomcat after this definition? (We'd like to be able to work with both,
since we can already get EJB3 detached 'containers'... and we have many
customers with TC 5.x in production!)

Since Tomcat is a very sucessfull Apache OSS project with lots of strategic
interests around it, these information would be very helpfull for lots of
companies like us.

Thank you in advance!
