The purpose of this page is to introduce a framework that offers the concept of 'conversations'. Seam is a product from JBoss for integrating JSF with EJB3. Look here for further information: http://www.jboss.com/products/seam
Seam Demo apps
If you have a running webapp you can integrate seam smoothly. You do not need to use a EJB3 application server. A Seam application runs even on tomcat. When you want to use Seam together with hibernate, you are able to run hibernate in the JBoss microcontainer

Seam works with MyFaces although some functionality overlap, and using some components may not make sense any more.
if you are using Seam with Facelets you may need some other configurations for Facelets support, which you can find more information about it at: MigrateFromJspToFacelets and Use_Facelets_with_Tomahawk and Facelets_with_Trinidad
if you are using AJAX4JSF or other AJAX frameworks with Seam (like in examples) take care about how to configure them to avoid conflict between Tomahawk extension filter and you AJAX framework filter.
