Java EE 7 progress - CDI 1.1 EDR and Weld 2.0 Alpha
By alexismp on Jan 23, 2012
Having the Early Draft Review of JSR 346 (CDI 1.1) available for review and studying is good but having an early implementation to go along is even better.
That's what JBoss' Jozef Hartinger has recently announced on his blog - an alpha release of the future Weld 2.0 reference implementation.
According to Jozef, the main purpose of this release is in fact to provide a feature-complete implementation of this draft CDI specification and features such as
CDI.current(), application life-cycle qualifiers,
beans.xml manipulation using
ProcessModule, and many others.
As a reminder CDI 1.1 is scheduled to be integrated in the upcoming Java EE 7 platform later this year.
