Java Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI) is the new dependency management system introduced in JSR 299. Formerly known as Web Beans, CDI brings the pioneering work done in frameworks such as Seam and Guice into mainstream of standards-based Java development. CDI is included in the Java EE 6 platform and serves as the unifying component management technology across the entire EE platform. In this talk, I'll introduce the basic concepts of CDI and explain how you can get started using Weld, the CDI reference implementation.
Speaker: Normal Richards
Norman Richards is a developer at Socialware, The Social Middleware Company. He is a contributor to the Seam and Weld projects and author of the DZone refcard for CDI. He is also the author of several popular Java books such as JBoss: A Developer's Notebook and XDoclet in Action. Norman can be contacted through his personal website at http://nostacktrace.com.
