Weld Extensions is now Seam Solder and soon GlassFish-friendly

Seam Solder logo

Seam Solder is the new name for Weld Extensions and is a set of portable extensions for CDI and Java EE 6. Following the release of JBoss 6, several people asked about the status of Weld and Seam.

Weld is the CDI reference implementation and Seam is a JBoss-sponsored community effort to build modular extensions for Java EE 6. Seam targets standard Java EE runtimes and other environments where CDI is integrated. There's recently been a focus on compatibility, specifically to get Seam 3 running smoothly on GlassFish 3.1. You can read more on Seam 3 in this post by Dan Allen.

On a related note the upcoming GlassFish 3.1 will integrate Weld 1.1 Final as previously mentioned. This should remove the vast majority of CDI problems found in 3.0.1.
