Jozef Hartinger commented on CDI-518:

{quote}In fact if WAR1 calls BeanManager#resolveObserverMethods then the ObserverMethods from WAR2 must not even get returned.{quote}

Based on what? Your conclusion is reasonable but the spec does not say so. Therefore, I raised this clarification issue.

> An event with qualifier @Initialized(ApplicationScoped.class) is fired when the application
> context is initialized and an event with qualifier @Destroyed(ApplicationScoped.class) is fired
> when the application is destroyed. The event payload is:
> • the ServletContext if the application is a web application deployed to a Servlet container, or Conversation context lifecycle
> • any java.lang.Object for other types of application.
> {quote}
> Unlike dependency injection, the spec does not define any visibility boundaries for events. It could therefore be implied that in an EAR a web application could observe the ServletContext event for a different web application. This obviously does not seem right and the spec should explicitly define the expected behavior.
