Word on the JavaOne street....
The Managed Beans specification defines the basic programming model for application components managed by the Java EE container.
As defined by this specification, most Java classes, including all JavaBeans, are managed beans. This specification defines contextual lifecycle management and dependency injection as generic services applicable to all....
My understanding is that these are going away, and it is just CDI for Java EE 7 for JSF managed beans.
Pretty sure I heard Arun Gupta say something like that in the tweetersphere during JavaOne.....
If this is true, we should reword or delete this. Not sure exactly.. But it seems like something needs to be here to say that JSF Managed Beans are deprecated for CDI going forward (if that is in fact true).
