- In Eclipse, use the wizard to create a new Seam project called "myProject", make sure to choose "EAR" as the project type, as WAR files do not support EJB3
- Eclipse will create four separate projects
- Of these, only two areas are, for now, of interest to us
- The "WebContent" folder in the "myProject" project
- This will contain all your JSF pages, images, CSS files etc. Basically, everything to do with the UI.
- The "ejbModule" folder in the "myProject-ejb" project
- This will contain all your Java classes.
- Although there is a SRC directory under the "myProject" folder, you can't use classes there as fully working Seam components
- Since most of the classes should be regarding business logic or persistance, they should be EJBs anyway
- To help clear some of the clutter set the filter to hide "Libraries from external"
- Turn off the Hibernate logging by opening "persistence.xml" (located in myProject-ejb --> ejbModule --> META-INF) and setting the property "hibernate.show_sql" to "false". You don't have to do this, but I find Hibernate to be pretty chatty and the messages usually don't help me much. You can always turn it back on later if needed.
