Hi Mark,

Quoting from your blog:

Have you ever tried to boot a CDI container like JBoss Weld or Apache 
OpenWebBeans in Java SE? While doing this task you will end up knee deep 
in the implementation code of the container you are using!

Well, I've never had any trouble using

   new Weld().initialize();

that's simple enough and documented, so where's the problem?

Only with OWB I'm currently knee-deep in source code, for lack of decent 

Deltaspike as another wrapper doesn't help understanding the underlying 
containers, either.

Of course, it's nice to have such an abstraction, but I think this 
should really be part of the official CDI API.

I believe there's a CDI spec JIRA issue on this topic - is there any 
progress for CDI 1.1?

Best regards,

for JBoss Weld and Apache TomEE. Others might follow ;)
