Adding support for web frameworks in Eclipse can be challenging since Eclipse and Web Tools might not be flexible/extendable enough in the areas we would like it to be. The authors of the bof come with experience from adding Seam support to Eclipse. Seam uses many different technologies: JSF, HTML, EJB3, JPA, jBPM, Drools, etc. and making the support for these work seamlessly from a tooling side proofed to be a much bigger challenge compared to making the underlying frameworks work together. Attend this bof to have a discussion about the past and current challenges in adding support for web frameworks in Eclipse.
