I have recently noticed some Tweets about Helidon running Weld in native. And if memory
serves, you are from Helidon team, am I correct?
So first of all, congratulations, CDI in native is no small feat :-)
Seeing that, I went and checked some of the code Helidon is using to work around certain
Weld issues you seemed to have encountered.
Things like proxy names but also others such as CL warning in JDK 11, custom weld features
and so on...
I know there is bunch of specific things you need to do (such as your WeldFeature class
does), but many others are fairly general problems that we would love to have solved in
Which brings me to the question - why not contribute it back to Weld?
You would help an open source project that you are consuming while avoiding the need to
substitute our code with bytecode manipulation and hoping we don't change internals
to break that.
For instance the aforementioned proxy names problem seems like something we wouldn't
mind changing in Weld so that it fits your scenario as it wouldn't break current usage
Same for class defining in SE for JDK 11+, we even have a tracking issue for that and
need a solution much like what you have, only wrapped into a multi release JAR so that it
runs on both, 8 and 11+.
And there is probably more, I have only quick-scanned your code and don't know the ins
and outs of it.
