[cdi-dev] RequestScoped and Injection Points

If I understand you correctly then the answer is: why the hack don't I get the InjectionPoint info for @RequestScoped bean producer methods, right?

This has to do that NormalScoped Contexts always will result in creating a proxy which will get injected. Which means that we could determine the injection point only for the proxy (which is of no use) but not for the contextual instance which gets created by the producer method.

You just have no way to determine where your contextual instance will gonna get used. In fact, they will always only be accessed via proxies and thus from n different other beans. In other words: there is not 1 InjectionPoint but multiple. And they are completely undetermined at the time the contextual instance gets created.

You currently can only use  the InjectionPoint info in produer methods for @Dependent beans.
