In fact, a more safe way is to use the Weld API, cast the invocation context to org.jboss.weld.interceptor.WeldInvocationContext and use the appropriate methods.

Looking in the code that seems to do the same thing, at least in Weld 3.0.1.

Going via getContextData() is much easier though for code that has to support both Weld and OWB.


Yes. There is already a spec issue: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-468 but this would require a change in interceptors spec.

I read the issue, thanks for the pointer. I do wonder if the entry in the context data isn't the easiest option regardless. That might only require an update in the CDI spec. Essentially, just standardise the key being used?

Currently the interceptor factory is an absolutely fantastic feature, but its usefulness is greatly diminished by the fact that no interceptor at this moment can (reliably) retrieve the interceptor bindings for all CDI implementations.

The spec even uses dynamically adding @Transactional as an example;

 * <pre>
 * &#64;Produces
 * &#64;RequestScoped
 * public MyClass produceMyClass(InterceptionFactory<MyClass> factory) {
 *     factory.configure().add(new AnnotationLiteral<Transactional>() {
 *     });
 *     return factory.createInterceptedInstance(new MyClass());
 * }

But all the current interceptor implementations backing @Transactional do something like:

public Object proceed(InvocationContext ctx) throws Exception {
        Transactional transactionalAnnotation =

So that clearly won't work.

The spec text for InterceptionFactory also doesn't mention this caveat at all. So I wonder, what was the intended approach for   InterceptionFactory and intercepter bindings with attributes?

Or was InterceptionFactory solely intended for intercepter bindings without (non-binding) attributes?

Kind regards,

Is there a standard way to get the bindings? Perhaps getting hold of the Bean<T> that represents the current Interceptor?

You can inject a bean with scope @Dependent, qualifier @Default and type Interceptor into any interceptor instance. However, this will not help for @Nonbinding value members of an interceptor binding.
