             Summary: review PassivationCapable interface
                 Key: CDI-317
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-317
             Project: CDI Specification Issues
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Beans
            Reporter: Mark Struberg

Currently the spec says that only _passivation capable Beans_ must implement the PassivationCapable interface.

But a Bean class could result in both passivation-capable and not-passivation-capable beans. For e.g. a ProducerMethodBean it depends on the scope of the produced instance. For implementing this properly you would need to always need 2 classes for each bean-type. And even worse - often you know only after the all the Bean-building that this very bean is passivation-capable or not.

Thus I suggest to extend the meaning of PassivationCapable#getId() to allow returning *null* if the very bean doesn't support passivation.
