Jim Hazen commented on JBSEAM-903:

I'm partial to @InOut.  We already have @In, we already have @Out, this combines the two.  In addition InOut variables are part of the vernacular of other frameworks.  Reusing the term to mean essentially the same thing I think we lessen Seam's learning curve.  Or at least the @InOut annotation's learning curve.  @Biject makes great sense only to those familiar with the concept.  When you're just getting started bijection is explained in terms of injection and outjection, something that I think should be reflected in the annotation.

>             Project: JBoss Seam
>          Issue Type: Feature Request
>    Affects Versions: 1.1.6.GA
>            Reporter: Andrew
>         Assigned To: Shane Bryzak
>            Priority: Minor
> IMO, it would be great to have an InOut annotation that can combine In and Out to avoid excessive typing. Examples:
> Now:
> @In(required=false, value="someString", scope=ScopeType.EVENT)
> @Out(required=false, value="someString", scope=ScopeType.EVENT)
> private String localVariableName;	
> Easier as:
> @Bidirectional(required=false, value="someString", scope=ScopeType.EVENT)
> private String localVariableName;
