Interceptor bindings need clarification
Project: CDI Specification Issues
Issue Type: Clarification
Affects Versions: 1.1.EDR1
Reporter: Jozef Hartinger
Fix For: 1.1.EDR2
As part of CDI-2, changes were made to the Interceptors chapter of the CDI specification.
These changes need further clarification:
Interceptor bindings defined on methods may override the interceptor bindings defined on
One way to interpret this is that the set of interceptor bindings defined on a method
overrides the set of interceptor bindings defined on a class, which is clearly not the
If the set of interceptor bindings of a bean
or interceptor, including bindings inherited from stereotypes and other
interceptor bindings, has two instances of a certain interceptor binding type
and the instances have different values of some annotation member, the bean
or interceptor must override the *inherited set* by definining an annotation
instance of its own, otherwise, the container automatically detects the problem
and treats it as a definition error.
Here again I would avoid referencing "the inherited set", since it's not
clear what that means, and rather use wording similar to the section 2.4.4 - default scope
of a stereotype.
