Pete Muir commented on WELD-900:

We already have a chapter that details how to get started with Weld, called "Getting started with Weld" -- http://docs.jboss.org/weld/reference/latest/en-US/html/gettingstarted.html

Anyway, if you have any concrete changes, please create a pull request, otherwise I'll close this issue as it's not particularly definite about what can be changed.

> It's nice to have a nice text for a DZone article, but for a reference documentation, we should favor briefness and structure over potential nomination for Man Booker International Prize :)
> What I mean is, e.g., if someone starts with Weld, he needs steps 1., 2., 3.
> IMO, this should be in **bold** in a special chapter called "Preparing project to use Weld", with a sample code which is verified to work if copied and run, and eventually a reference to a quick-start app:

> There's just little one thing you need to do before you can start injecting them into stuff: you need to put them in an archive (a jar, or a Java EE module such as a war or EJB jar) that contains a special marker file: META-INF/beans.xml.

> In contrast, currently this most important information is buried at the end of last paragraph of irrelevantly sounding chapter, "1.1. What is a bean?". Why would anyone read "What is a bean"?
