Should this be detected as an error at deployment time?
I don't think that letting a user run into a StackOverflowError is particularly
friendly, but the spec does not explicitly state that the continer is required to detect
this (unless I am missing something, which is often the case).

Gavin, could you clarify that? From reading your comment, it seems like this use case
implies unbound recursion: Foo injects Bar which in turns injects another instance of
(which is dependent on the first instance of Bar) which injects another instance of Bar
Well, exactly. I mean, that's obvious from the definition of an
@Dependent object, right?
I mean, I don't quite follow what the source of doubt here is. Section
6.4 is *very* explicit on this.
