Weld 2.4.5.Final

2017-9-11   release   Matej Novotny

It’s about time we delivered another regular bugfix release for Weld 2. And while the list of fixes isn’t exhausting, some of them are quite crucial.

Notable fixes and improvements:

  • Weld Core:

    • Revise Java 8 default methods plus proxies/sublasing behaviour (WELD-2407 and WELD-2405)

    • All POMs in Weld core project should now have correct MIME types; this corrects issues with Nexus 3 (WELD-2417)

    • Proxies for signed packages should now be generated in custom packages (WELD-2402)

    • The behaviour of Weld Core and integrator provided implementation of org.jboss.weld.bootstrap.api.Environment is back to what it was in Weld 2.4.3.Final (WELD-2401)

      • We found out this change could cause serious headaches to integrators so we will leave it as it is - sorry for the mess

      • For Weld 3, we already have a better solution in place

  • Weld SE and Servlet

    • Both, Weld SE and Weld Servlet, will now explicitly bring in dependency on jboss-classfilewriter 1.2+ (WELD-2406)

  • Other

    • Under the jboss-as directory of Weld source code, you can now make use of new profiles to create WildFly patches yourself WELD-2397

WildFly Patch

As usual, a patch for WildFly 10.1.0.Final is available. But since WildFly 11 has already reached CR stage, we have decided to also provide you with patch for WildFly 11.0.0.CR1. If you’re not familiar with patching WildFly, check the FAQ.


Weld 3.0.1.Final

2017-8-25   release   Matej Novotny

Weld 3.0.1.Final is out and it brings some bugfixes as well as new version of Weld API - 3.0.SP1. Among the new things you can find sweet stuff such as an expansion to CDI 2 BeanConfigurator API or the ability to detect that injected object is Weld proxy. Wait, not only detect - you can also use it do get Metadata or even retrieve the actual contextual instance hidden beneath. So let’s see the summary of fixes and improvements, shall we?

Notable fixes and improvements:

  • Weld Core

    • Revised support for Java 8 default methods (WELD-2407 and WELD-2405)

    • Corrected MIME types for all POMs in Weld core - Nexus 3 will love us now! (WELD-2417)

    • Fixed how proxies are created for signed packages (WELD-2402)

    • Portable extension events should now be fired in accordance with specification WELD-2393

  • Weld SE

    • Synthetic bean archive can now have discovery mode annotated (WELD-2386)

    • Added a convenient static method WeldContainer.current() allowing you to quickly grab your running instance (WELD-2399)

    • Fixed a glitch when starting SE container and adding packages via Weld.addPackages() WELD-2395

  • Weld API/SPI

    • Added a way to detect proxies and subclasses (WELD-2407)

      • Every Weld-enhanced object (subclass/proxy) will now implement new marker interface(s) which grant access to additional data about the bean

      • This also allows to retrieve the underlying contextual instance

    • Added WeldBeanConfigurator to API - allows to select an @Alternative which was created using BeanConfigurator (WELD-2412)

    • We have enhanced the Environment in Weld SPI so that integrators define whether their bean archives are "EE module aware" or not (WELD-2398)

  • Other

    • Under the jboss-as directory of Weld source code, you can now make use of new profiles to create WildFly patches yourself WELD-2397

    • Weld SE and Weld Servlet now explicitly depends on jboss-classfilewriter in version 1.2+ WELD-2406

WildFly Patch

As usual, there is a patch for WildFly 10.1.0.Final is available.

But, for those of you who like to stay sharp, we have also created a patch for WildFly 11.0.0.Beta1.

Please note that there is currently a known issue with security context propagation in Weld 3 for WildFly 11. Though this should only concern people who use the combination of Elytron subsystem and asynchronous CDI events.

Weld 2.4.4.Final

2017-6-14   release   Matej Novotny

We have been busy chasing down some annoying little bugs and it’s high time you got the fruits of those efforts into your hands. Say hello to Weld 2.4.4.Final.

Notable fixes and improvements:

  • Weld Core

    • Fixed bean discovery event ordering when processing producers (WELD-2393)

    • Eliminated an NPE for a corner case with abstract decorator (WELD-2273)

    • Corrected @Initialized(RequestScoped.class) event firing in @PostConstruct callbacks (WELD-2372)

    • Fixed BeanManager.isStereotype() behavior when checking a qualifier annotated with yet another qualifier (WELD-2390)

  • Weld SE

    • Added a convenience static method WeldContainer.current(), a shortcut for CDI.current() with no need to cast the result (WELD-2399)

    • Allowed to specify bean discovery mode for synthetic archives (WELD-2386)

    • Fixed bean class discovery problem when adding whole packages (WELD-2395)

  • Weld Servlet

    • Improved logging and make checks more lenient in case the container is not yet bootstrapped (WELD-2382)

  • Configuration options

    • In SE and Servlet environments, Jandex can now be forcibly prohibited from processing your archives. This is useful when a third-party dependecy brings in some unsupported Jandex version (WELD-2374)

  • Development tools

    • If a deployment validation fails and the development mode is enabled, a simple validation HTML report (which contains a lot of useful information) is generated

      • Users are encouraged to always attach this report when asking a question on the mailing list or any other communication channel

As usual, a patch for WildFly is available. Target platform is WildFly 10.1.0.Final. If you’re not familiar with patching WildFly, check the FAQ.


Weld 3.0.0.Final - the first implementation of CDI 2.0!

2017-5-15   release   Martin Kouba

I am very pleased to announce the release of Weld 3.0.0.Final - the first implementation of CDI 2.0! I would like to thank not only to everyone involved in this particular release but also to the Weld community as a whole and also to all active CDI EG members who invested a lot of energy into the specification process!

[ source, java ]

/**
     * TODO: Continue to deliver bugfixes and improvements
     */
    public class WeldTeam extends OpenSourceCommunity {
    
      @Inject
      @AwesomeNews
      Event<String> event;
    
      public void release() {
        // Fire asynchronously so that we don't need to wait for observer notification before we start celebrating!
        event.fireAsync("CDI 1.2 is dead, long live CDI 2.0!");
        celebrate();
      }
    
    }
Note
Weld 3 is an IMPORTANT MILESTONE. Therefore, we’re preparing a special blogpost summarizing all the important stuff that was added. Expect the Tour around Weld 3 blogpost within a few days.

Let’s sum up the notable changes since 3.0.0.CR2:

  • Weld defines two non-portable notification options to configure the notification of asynchronous observer methods (see also Notification options for more info):

    • weld.async.notification.mode - the notification mode, possible values are: SERIAL (default) and PARALLEL

    • weld.async.notification.timeout - the notification timeout (in milliseconds) after which the returned completion stage must be completed.

      • If the time expires the stage is completed exceptionally with a CompletionException holding the java.util.concurrent.TimeoutException as its cause

      • The expiration does not abort the notification of the observers

  • Session replication - handle situation when HTTPSessionBean might not be serializable (WELD-2346)

  • Fire @Initialied(RequestScoped.class)/@Destroyed(RequestScoped.class) events for a @PostConstruct callback if the request context was activated for the specific callback

  • Weld SE

    • It’s possible to easily register a org.jboss.weld.bootstrap.api.Service during container bootstrap (WELD-2360)

    • Any javax.enterprise.inject.spi.CDI method can now be called during AfterDeploymentValidation (WELD-2371)

    • ContainerInitialized and ContainerShutdown now implement toString() (WELD-2354)

  • Weld Servlet

    • Fixed usage of Jandex on Tomcat when using unpackWars=false (WELD-2357)

  • Added option to disable Jandex in Weld SE and Weld Servlet (WELD-2374)

  • Development tools

    • If a deployment validation fails and the development mode is enabled a simple validation HTML report (which contains a lot of useful information) is generated

      • Users are encouraged to always attach this report when asking a question on the mailing list or any other communication channel

  • Updated documentation and migration notes for integrators

  • Examples cleanup (dropped GAE support, etc.)

Weld 3.0.0.CR1

2017-1-23   release   Martin Kouba

I am very pleased to announce the release of Weld 3.0.0.CR1 (aligned with CDI 2.0-PFD). See also the release details. Thanks to everyone involved in this release! This version of Weld will be part of the JSR 365 Approval Ballot (watch CDI spec website for news). The Beta1 version of Weld 3 turned out to be sufficiently stable and so the first release candidate is mostly dedicated to cleanup and minor optimizations. We would like to release Weld 3.0.0.Final (stable version of CDI 2.0) in early February.

I am very pleased to announce the first Beta version of Weld 3.0.0 (CDI 2.0). See also the release details. Thanks to everyone involved in this release!

This is an important milestone. CDI 2.0 is now considered "feature complete" and so the next Weld 3 versions should be mostly dedicated to cleanup and optimization. The next version will be Weld 3.0.0.CR1 (ETA in mid January). Finally, we would like to release Weld 3.0.0.Final in early February.

New and noteworthy

  • javax.enterprise.inject.spi.InterceptionFactory implementation (WELD-2257)

  • ProcessSyntheticObserverMethod container lifecycle event (WELD-2279)

  • BeforeDestroyed event fired before a context is actually destroyed (WELD-2269)

  • "trimmed" bean archives (WELD-2268)

  • context control - ActivateRequestContext interceptor binding (WELD-2267) and RequestContextController built-in bean (WELD-2266)

  • ProcessSyntheticBean container lifecycle event (WELD-2265)

  • few proposals did not make it into CDI 2.0 and so we enhanced the Weld API:

    • org.jboss.weld.inject.WeldInstance (already part of Weld 2.4 API)

    • org.jboss.weld.interceptor.WeldInvocationContext allows to obtain a set of interceptor bindings for a lifecycle callback, business method, timeout method, or constructor (see also CDI-468)
