meantime I've started to contribute CDI samples to javaee7-samples on
github  as Arun Gupta encouraged me 
I've got a plenty of usefull still simple examples of several CDI features
based on junit/arquillian tests so that I may contribute them immediatelly
to javaee7-samples with only some simple modifications
If somebody wants to add a sample of a missing CDI feature here  please
let me know
