Hi all congratulation to all the java developers community for this great step, webbeans simplify numerous things and give u different simple alternatives to implement enterprise patterns, i encourage anyone to test the RI BUT, it is right now only supported on the JbossAS,while jboss is an excellent app server, i prefer running on lighter containers, actually tomcat , so i was wondering when do u expect to support it? thanks again and congratulations joe
There are three WebBeans implementations in development that I know of: jBoss, Resin, and an Apache project, so you're not going to be limited to jBoss in any way. Also, the spec is still in draft stage, so it's a little early to be worrying about implementations. :)
The Web Beans RI features an SPI that allows it to be integrated with other application servers. In particular I expect to see GlassFish support very soon.
