“When I stumbled upon Errai, I was re-introduced to JEE. We had previously explored a variety of backend frameworks, including Spring and most recently Guice. I was instantly amazed and attracted to the simplicity and elegance of JEE – in particular the CDI API. Once I had my JBoss AS 7 environment set up, I was incredibly pleased with how neatly everything just seemed to “work” – REST, Persistence/Transactions, CDI, and how little configuration was required. It almost didn’t seem possible.”
A few years ago, I wrote a blog about how Java EE made a huge comeback over Spring as a development platform. 159 comments later I still get people ranting for or against me on that thread. What was interesting about this particular testimonial is that the developer investigated both Spring and Guice.

I still stand by my 2+ year old blog that Java EE made a huge comeback as a web development platform.
