Weld 2.4.7.Final

2018-3-20   release   Matej Novotny

Weld 2.4.7.Final is now available. It includes multiple important bugfixes, many of them focused around proxy generation and/or invocation.

Weld 2.4 now enters maintenance mode - there will be no further active development on Weld 2. We will be channeling our efforts into Weld 3 instead.

Notable fixes and improvements:

  • Weld Core:

    • Proxy-related issues:

      • Fixed possible NPE with multiple deployments one of which uses relaxed construction configuration (WELD-2448)

      • BeanManager.getInjectableReference was using unnecessarily strict checks for proxyability (WELD-2466)

      • Proxy serialization is now container agnostic (WELD-2447)

      • Fix invocation of private observer method (WELD-2443)

        • This only applies to private observer method which is not intercepted but is declared on a bean which has some other intercepted methods

      • Correct proxy generation for class hierarchy with abstract class and generics (WELD-2470)

    • Other issues:

      • Minor optimization in internal structures of InterceptionModel (WELD-2455)

      • Improve exception logging for DeploymentException (WELD-2453)

      • Prevent NPE if ProtectionDomain.getPermissions() returns null (WELD-2464)

  • Weld SE

    • Fields in org.jboss.weld.environment.se.Weld are now protected (WELD-2451)

    • Allow to register custom BeanArchiveHandler using ServiceLoader mechanism (WELD-2450)

      • This applies to SE and Servlet environments

  • Other

    • With OSGi, javax.ejb is now imported optionally (WELD-2458)

    • Weld now uses SpotBugs (a successor to FindBugs) (WELD-2462)

    • module-info, if present, is now correctly ignored during bean discovery phase (WELD-2459)
