Seam Tool Window

View | Tool Windows | Seam

The Seam tool window provides a structured view of your Seam resources. These include annotated Java classes, the appropriate xml files, and the libraries referenced in your Seam components.

The resources are grouped by modules. The modules are the top hierarchical elements in the tree view.

You can expand and collapse the nodes in the tree view, access the dependency diagrams for your Seam components, and open the elements shown in the tool window in the editor.


Use the toolbar buttons to expand and collapse the nodes in the tree view.

Opening elements in the editor

You can open the elements shown in the Seam tool window in the editor. To do that, select the element of interest and press F4.

To open the elements which are the "leaves" of the tree (i. e. the ones at the bottom of the hierarchy), you can also use a double click.
