Gunnar Morling created CDI-419:

             Summary: Clarify whether custom beans need to declare the qualifier "Any"
                 Key: CDI-419
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-419
             Project: CDI Specification Issues
          Issue Type: Clarification
          Components: Beans
            Reporter: Gunnar Morling

It's not obvious whether custom beans contributed through a portable extension need to return the {{Any}} qualifier from there {{getQualifier()}} methods or not (the CDI implementation would be required to add it if missing then).

Concerned spec sections are:

Section 2.3.1:

Every bean has the built-in qualifier @Any, even if it does not explicitly declare this qualifier ...

And section 11.1 which says:

getTypes(), getQualifiers(), getScope(), getName() and getStereotypes()
must return the bean types, qualifiers, scope type, bean name and
stereotypes of the bean, as defined in Chapter 2
