Proposed Agenda

The following agenda was proposed

  1. Discussion on the last ticket pending : CDI-395 Public fields in extensions should not be allowed

  2. Last second ticket

  3. Next step for the MR.

Discussion on CDI-395

We were waiting on implementation feedback on this point. jh told us that there was too much risk to create retro-compatibility issues. So it was decided to remove CDI-395 from MR.

Last minute issues

Jira Description Decision Note


bean-discovery-mode="annotated" and Producers/Observers in @Dependent beans

in MR


@RequestScoped Javadoc outdated

in MR


Session bean specialization example is not valid

in MR


BeanManager#getProducerFactory return type differs between API and spec

in MR


CDI conversation activation conflicts with the Servlet spec


needs some test before decicing if we can include it in MR. Test leaded by jh

Next Step

The list is now closed (except for 411) It’s accessible here and in Jira. The Maintenance Release will be officially launch on the 6th january week. By then, work and discussion can start on the ticket chosen for this MR.
