             Summary: Clarify if Alternatives are filtered in BeanManager#getBeans() or #resolve()
                 Key: CDI-231
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-231
             Project: CDI Specification Issues
          Issue Type: Clarification
          Components: Resolution
    Affects Versions: 1.1.EDR1, 1.0
            Reporter: Mark Struberg
            Assignee: Mark Struberg
             Fix For: 1.1 (Proposed)

The spec and javadoc are not really clear if the @Alternative filter defined in "5.2.1. Unsatisfied and ambiguous dependencies" is already performed in BeanManager#getBeans() or only later in BeanManager#resolve().

Back in 2009 I did a blind test with an old Weld version which only returned @Alternatives in getBeans() and all other beans got filtered out. This seems to have changed now (since quite some time). 

Can we make this more clear what should happen in getBeans() and what should happen in resolve()?
