Pete Muir commented on CDI-113:

bq. I don't think that Weld loads any beans from jars which don't have beans.xml. Any built-in bean that Weld provides is clearly documented in the CDI specification. Examples include BeanManager, UserTransaction and a few others (security principle, validation factory). Some may depend on the runtime environment (such as when Weld runs in a Servlet environment). However, these cases are well specified.

This isn't 100% accurate, Weld also provides some built in beans that are Weld specific, currently this is only the Context control beans.

> We need such metadata for tooling.
> It would be very helpful to have some metadata for beans which implement spec required services (BeanManager, ...)
> Or for any other beans which CDI implementations register programmatically and which should be available for users.
> For example Weld loads some beans from jars which don't have beans.xml but some of those beans are available for injections.
> So far we don't have any documented way to recognize such beans.
