Subject Re: EJB 3.1 injection of a SessionBean in a click page
Date Wed, 14 Apr 2010 13:41:02 GMT
Hi Manuel,

Great work. I assume this was done with Glassfish 3?

So I am correct in saying that as long as CDI created the Page it automatically injected EJB

annotated services?

One thing I'm not sure of is this:

   * The jndi name under which the BeanManager can be found according to the CDI spec in a
JEE6 app 
  public static final String CDI_BEANMANAGER_JNDILOOKUPNAME = "java:comp/BeanManager";

I've found that certain containers doesn't use the 'java:' prefix for JNDI lookups. Do you
have a 
reference where this name is specified in the spec?

kind regards
