Mark Struberg commented on CDI-14:

I'd keep it in the BeanManager. Having to code 1 static singleton lookup is ugly enough.

Btw, please NOT JNDI again. JNDI really sucks! The JNDI spec is a splitter bomb cross over the whole JCP. You will find 20++ JSRs which define name spaces + behaviour, etc. Parts got cleaned up in EE6 (or was it 5?), but it's still broken and non-portable across AppServers to big degrees.

An example: try to register a Seam2/Hibernate datasource which works in different EE Servers without changing the JNDI name... This is just broken...

Also: there are a lot environments which either not have a JNDI environment at all, or it's readonly.

Just my 0.02 ...
