Seam in Action Translations

January 02, 2012

A long overdue post, I'm still excited to share that Seam in Action was translated (in 2010) into Korean and Simplified Chinese--two languages I can't even pretend to understand. It's pretty strange to see words that you spend countless hours revising look complete foreign to you. But exciting at the same time!

These books arrived in a box that clearly looked like it came out of a shipping container that was aboard an ocean carrier. My goal is that sometime soon (2012 perhaps?) I'll get to travel to where these texts originated :) (but hopefully on an airplane).

I have a whole stack of these books, so if you are in the DC area (or the US for that matter) and you want one of these books, just let me know. I'll mail it to you, free of charge.

Is an upgrade planned for Seam 3? I miss it so much to dwell into Seam! I'm surprised that having such material isn't considered a priority!

We're going to take a different approach this time around. The focus will be on the Java EE ecosystem rather than Seam as the centerpiece. Seam 3, as well as Apache DeltaSpike and the native CDI support in projects like Infinispan, Drools, etc are just add-ons to that ecosystem now. This equates to more books, perhaps a series.

The other part of the new approach is that I won't be going at it alone. I haven't raced back to writing a book because, well, I'm already so busy that I've been unable to take on any more work.

But I do agree with you that getting material out there is a priority.
