[cdi-dev] Extension handling in EARs

I fear the clash in bean names across different WARs is a bug which is the direct consequence of Weld only has 1 ‚User BeanManager‘. It seems there are multiple kind of BeanManagers in Weld. The one that Jozef already describes is the ‚BDA BeanManager‘. But there must be another one. What happens to all the AfterBeanDiscovery#addBean() beans? Where do they get stored in App servers using Weld?
What happens to BeforeBeanDiscovery#addScope and AfterBeanDiscovery#addContext ?
If I package deltaspike-jsf (which activates the a few JSF related Contexts) in one of my WARs, do I get those also for my other WARs? What if a 2nd war tries to register the same Context? I guess this is what Romain meant when he wanted to treat each WAR as (mostly) isolated unit.
Arjans experience is only the tip of the iceberg.
@Arjan, I would be interested if you would run your tests against TomEE-1.7.2-SNAPSHOT. I expect this is also broken as you added lots of workarounds to get it running on Weld. But still would love to know how far (or not) portability goes.
I do fully agree with „1 Extension instance per Application“ paragraph. But the important question is what Appliation means. This is by far not clear. The EE spec for example talks about „multiple Applications in an EAR“ in some paragraphs (meaning Web-Apps it seems). So both interpretations are ok by the strict spec wording.
Of course, the other approaches have their downsides as well…
