Subject: static producers
To: Java Community Process JSR #299 Expert List <JSR-299-EG(a)jcp.org>
should we allow producer methods and fields to be declared "static"?
This would mean that the Web Bean manager does not need to instantiate
an instance of the Web Bean that declares the producer method/field
when invoking the method/field.
I can't think of a good reason why *not*...
Furthermore, should we allow static observer and disposal methods?
Again, I can't quite think of a reason why *not*...
Disposal methods, yes to match producer methods. Static observer
methods are less interesting I think.
