Seam Reports is portable between Java EE 6 and Servlet
environments enhanced with CDI, and can also be used with CDI in
J2SE. It abstracts the usage of commonly used reporting engine
frameworks, and acts as a bridge between CDI and supported engine
frameworks. Seam Reports can be downloaded now from github.
