By alexismp on Jan 18, 2011
Pete Muir has announced the release of Weld 1.1, the reference implementation of CDI 1.0. This is the release GlassFish 3.1 will ship with as previously discussed, and the last Pete worked on as the lead. Congrats to him on his new role and thanks for all the fish!
There's been quite of CDI and Weld coverage here lately, so here's a quick recap :
• Weld Extensions is now Seam Solder and soon GlassFish-friendly
• Java champions on the value and portability of CDI
• Weld 1.1 in GlassFish 3.1
With the upcoming release of GlassFish 3.1, the vast majority of Weld or CDI-related issues should be gone. Specifically these memory leak related issues which impacted CDI early adopters in 3.0: 14419, 13928 and 12368 are now all fixed (check this complete list of CDI-related issues), including the portability issue with CDI extensions (Seam 3 on GlassFish) which was fixed in build 37. Siva has already integrated Weld 1.1 into GlassFish, so look for it in the 3.1 RC1 build!
