Subject Re: CDI annotations in OSGi
Date Sun, 25 Mar 2012 20:31:45 GMT
You are right that reimplementing the whole CDI spec would be a lot of 
work and perhaps be unnecessary code duplication. So extending OWB is 
another way to solve the problem. I am pretty sure this will happen over 
time. I will ask how the state is there.

On the other hand from the blueprint annotations module I see that there 
is interest in adding annotations to blueprint and I also think that 
makes sense. So the question is if CDI annotations could be used for 
that instead of proprietary annotations. Do you think OWB could be 
brought together with blueprint or would you just skip the whole 
blueprint in that case?
