> Add BeanManager to a ServletContext attribute
> ---------------------------------------------
>                 Key: CDI-117
>                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-117
>             Project: CDI Specification Issues
>          Issue Type: Feature Request
>          Components: Java EE integration
>    Affects Versions: 1.0
>            Reporter: Christian Kaltepoth
>            Assignee: Pete Muir
>            Priority: Minor
> CDI 1.0 defines a JNDI lookup as the standard way to obtain the BeanManager for resources not managed by the CDI environment. However in a servlet environment it would be much easier to get the BeanManager from a standardized servlet context attribute. This would be also a major simplification in environments that don't support JNDI (for example GAE) or that don't allow to use the standard JNDI name for the BeanManager (for example Apache Tomcat).
> This topic was already discussed on weld-dev about a year ago [1]. Weld 1.0 already supports this [2] and OpenWebBeans also added this feature [3]. Unfortunately Weld 1.1 changed the attribute to a Weld-specific name in [4] which currently leads to much confusion [5].
> As both of the major CDI implementations support this feature I think it should finally be put into the spec.
