Martin Kouba commented on CDI-584:

I see, that's a good example. So something like {{ProcessBean#setInjectionPoints()}} might be useful.

> {{ProcessBean}} lifecycle event could be the occasion to add new Injection point to an existing bean, but when you call {{ProcessBean#getBean()#getInjectionPoints()}} the returned set is mutable in OWB and immutable in Weld.
> As the spec doesn't precise if the Set should be mutable or not, each impl made its own choice.
> The result is a lack of consistency between both impl and an interesting feature harder to do with Weld (work with AnnotatedType or create a custom bean to add injection point)
> More generally we should clarify mutability of each Set returned in the SPI. And check if it wouldn't be better to add method to life cycle event to provide a "temporary" mutable set (i.e. {{ProcessBean#getInjectionPoints()}}
