CDI Without Java EE 6?

Andy Gibson has announced a new, CDISource project that aims to promote and
facilitate the use of the Java Contexts and Dependency Injection
framework, and give users the option of using CDI on its own
without Java EE 6. CDISource will focus on enabling the use of CDI
in a vendor neutral environment and maximise the portability of
code across CDI implementations.

“There’s a whole slew of uses for a good type safe and flexible
dependency injection and AOP framework and such as CDI outside of
Java EE containers but there is very little information and code to
make it actually work,” says Gibson.

Andy Gibson will work on the project along with Rick Hightower
and Rob Williams. The CDISource team will begin posting articles on
the project and showcasing code over the upcoming weeks. A Google Code project has already been set up for the
CDISource examples.
