nice work guys !
Groovy support is very interesting indeed.
Cool, can't wait
Obviously, Nuxeo 5.2, due this fall, will be based on Seam 2.0. There are some exciting features in the beta announcement that I can't wait to try (but we have to ship 5.1 first ;) ).
Thanks for the good work, Gavin (and all the contributors to Seam).
