John Ament commented on CDI-45:

I'm -1 for adding a method named {{getOptional}} but might be +0.5 on methods like {{optional()}} or {{asOptional()}} since from a callers point of view 

It would be more ideal if the {{Instance}} object dealt with missing beans better, which is really what this ticket should cover.  I think I'm strongly +1 on adding at least an {{isPresent()}} (the opposite of {{isUnresolved()}} effectively being a positive check rather than those negative checks) and an {{ifPresent(Consumer<T>)}} method.

> There are occoasions where it may be useful for some injection points to be optional, e.g.
> @Inject
> @Optional 
> MyBean bean; 
> This would behave the same as a normal injection point, however it will not cause the deployment to fail if it is not satisified.
