Not yet.  Feel free to create as many subtasks as you need under this jira:

Maybe a good title for this one would be something like "Java EE Injection annotation scanning
for 299 beans"

And basically the goal is to give Geronimo a list of 299 bean classes so that it can scan
them for these annotations:


The code to do the scanning is there in the naming builders, but the code to get a list of
bean classes is not there.

Bare in mind this task is way bigger than it appears as we currently have no code to really
bootstrap OpenWebBeans into Geronimo and kick of any of the work it needs to do to actually
generate that list of 299 beans.

There's also a requirement which we might want to just ignore initially as it might be way
too against the Geronimo architecture.  The trick is that new beans can be added at startup
via the BeanManager events and Geronimo does not do *any* annotation scanning at startup,
only at deploy which could be in a completely different java process.  I think we might just
need to turn a blind eye to that detail or it might be too hard to get started as essentially
it might mean have re-architect Geronimo at a very fundamental level.  Getting anything running
would be a great step forward.

Anyway, get ready for a challenge :)
