Mark Struberg commented on CDI-533:

In that sense you are right. There should actually be 2 different 'BDA' terms. If you are talking about bean-scanning and class pickup then this of course should be per-jar (or classpath entry). 

I otoh was solely talking about the enablement of Alternatives, Interceptors and Decorators which imo is fine to behave on a per-EE-module basis. The reason why I answered this issue is that the spec links those 2 via the 'BDA' term, which is highly confusing.

> In CDI1.2 spec, the definition for bean archive are conflicting between section 5 and section 12;
> In section 5, 
> Beans and their clients may be deployed in modules in a module architecture such as the Java EE environment. In a module architecture, certain modules are considered bean archives. In the Java EE module architecture, any Java EE module or library is a module. The Java EE module or library is a bean archive if it contains a beans.xml file. 
> This section talks about the bean deployment on the module or library level. It indicates one web module (may contain web-inf\lib etc) is a single bean archive. The smallest unit is a module or a lib.
> While in section 12:
> When determining which archives are bean archives, the container must consider:
> • Library jars, EJB jars or application client jars
> • The WEB-INF/classes directory of a war
> • Directories in the JVM classpath
> It indicates each jar should be a bean archive. The smallest unit is a jar.
> I started this conversation with Mark, Jozef, Antoine, Romain. The correct implementation is section 12. So section 5 needs to be reworked.
> All conversation is on the cdi-dev mailing list.
