Dhiraj Dwarapudi commented on CDI-539:

Yeah, something similar to ProjectStage. 

But 'profile' is more usable and covers larger use cases. 
* I can have mutliple profiles active at the same time
* I would like to boootstrap my application at start-time with different profiles. ProjectStage can be used to accomplish this, but the intent of ProjectStage (as the name suggests) seem to be more for different stages of application development
* The way 'profile's are implemented in Spring, a custom profile is just another string. So you don't need to write any code to support custom 'profile'. For that matter there are not built-in profiles. They are user-defined.

> I would like to activate a set of beans at application start-time. Currently I can use Programmatic lookup in CDI for dynamically injecting the beans. But I believe it'll be easier with better support for this.
> Spring has a nice support for this with the concept of a 'Profile':

> Would be really helpful if CDI has support for this.
