    • Java Enterprise Edition 6 fans rejoice! CDISource is here. CDISource is a new organization created to promote the use of CDI (JSR 299).  Rick Hightower, co-creator of CDISource, explains the inspiration for CDISource:

      CDI is the Java standard for dependency injection (DI) and interception (AOP). It is evident from the popularity of DI and AOP that Java needs to address DI and AOP so that it can build other standards and JSRs on top of it. DI and AOP are the foundation of many Java frameworks, and CDI will be the foundation of many future specifications and JSRs.

      We decided to create an organization, named CDISource, to promote the use of CDI. This organization is not tied to any vendor nor to Java EE 6.

      It did not take too long digging into CDI before I realized that Java Enterprise Edition 6 really nailed it this time. I have been a long time anti-EJB3 proponent. The interception model was flawed. The DI was flawed (or rather missing). CDI looks much better.

      CDI has merit on its own outside of the EJB and JSF space. Of course you can use CDI with JSF 2 and/or EJB 3.1. However CDI has a much wider scope than just Java EE 6 applications.

    • In the last few weeks I have been rather busy working on a new project with Rick Hightower, who is fairly well known for his training and writings on Spring and JSF, and Rob WIlliams who is a blogger known as much for meddling in new technologies (and getting mad at them) as he is for intertwining various historical and literary references in his posts. The result of this is the CDISource project which aims to advocate and facilitate the use of the JSR 299 – Java Contexts and Dependency Injection framework across the Java landscape.
