We also provide a patch for WildFly 10.1.0 to help users evaluate CDI 2.0 under a Java EE application server.

To do so just download and unzip WildFly 10.1.0.Final, then download the patch (no need to unzip it), go to the <WILDFLY_HOME>/bin directory and patch the server with the following command:

./ --command="patch apply <PATH_TO_PATCH>/"

you should obtain the following result in the console:

    "outcome" : "success",
    "result" : {}

Your WildFly server is now patched to use CDI 2.0 and Weld 3.0 CR1.

Happy testing!
