Subject [jira] [Created] (MYFACES-3742) Implement @FlowDefinition annotation
Date Tue, 02 Jul 2013 16:01:20 GMT
Leonardo Uribe created MYFACES-3742:

             Summary: Implement @FlowDefinition annotation
                 Key: MYFACES-3742
             Project: MyFaces Core
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: JSR-344
            Reporter: Leonardo Uribe

Implement @FlowDefinition cdi annotation, as described in the spec.

I have found this annotation very tricky to implement. It is simple to do it using @Produces
annotation, but the real trouble is we can't use CDI annotations inside myfaces implementation
by the following reasons:

- jar files without beans.xml will not be scanned. If we add the file inside myfaces jar,
CDI will try to scan all classes inside the jar file, and some of them require optional dependencies.
The final effect is CDI will start to throw errors.

- In some cases, myfaces jars are not on WEB-INF/lib folder, and are just part of the default
libraries of the server, so there is no reference to the files.

The only option is use javax.enterprise.inject.spi.Producer, but Producer.getInjectionPoints()
returns a Set<InjectionPoint> which usually are customized for the CDI implementation.
So, we need to provide an implementation, but before that, we need to check how that part
works to do not break CDI implementations.
