I believe Seam plans to offer first class support for Apache Wicket and GWT as a view technology. Is there something inherent in Seam that makes it suitable only for component based frameworks and not for say traditional request/response like Struts, Spring MVC et all.
Technically no, there is nothing in the Seam core that ties it to any given web framework (great effort went into disconnecting it from JSF). I think it is a philosophy thing. The Seam developers believe strongly in component-oriented frameworks. They don't all agree what that component-oriented framework should be, but they do believe it is one of them (or one yet to come). At the very least, we have to support JSF because it is the industry standard and has the best chance at success (and Seam makes it pretty damn compelling).
