             Summary: Implicit bean archive compatibility issue
                 Key: CDI-351
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-351
             Project: CDI Specification Issues
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Portable Extensions
    Affects Versions: 1.1.PFD
            Reporter: Jozef Hartinger
            Assignee: Pete Muir
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 1.1.FD

Assume an existing extension library (CDI 1.0). This library is not deployed as a bean archive (it does not contain beans.xml). Instead, the library contains an extension which registers beans, interceptors, etc. using BeforeBeanDiscovery.addAnnotatedType().

With CDI 1.1 the no-bean-archive assumption no longer holds and since a scope annotation is used somewhere in the extension, this extension is now recognized as an implicit bean archive. That causes the discovered beans to clash with those added programatically.

*Note that it is not possible to fix this by adding beans.xml with bean-discovery-mode set to "none". This would fix the problem in CDI 1.1 but the presence of beans.xml would break the extension in a CDI 1.0 container*.
