[cdi-dev] Concurrency Control

I just want to bring this to everyone attention one more time.
The conversation scope concurrency control mechanism seems to be a frequent
point of pain in many projects.
Especially when working with browser triggered asynchronous requests, you
can not rely on client-sided request synchronization.
Weld, unlike OWB, grants a 1 second timeout prior to throwing a (the
specified) BusyConversationException mitigating the effect a bit.
This is a rather strict un-configurable type of CC. Also its completely out
of alignment with the other build-in scopes, offering no CC what so ever.
In the cases of Session- and Application-Scope, thread handling is left
entirely to the developer, even so they are just as vulnerable in AJAX
We should really consider introducing a common configurable mechanism, that
is aligned across all scopes (obviously accounting for backwards
compatibility in the case of conversation scope).
Would really appreciate some feedback.
