Hi John,

the "beanType" parameter is de facto the same as the required type of an 
injection point. So yes, the param must be one of the bean types and for 
normal scoped the returned client proxy must implement this type (+ all 
interfaces). Also note that a contextual reference (client for normal 
scoped) is not required to implement all bean types of the bean.
