This session is a quick, hands-on tour of Contexts and Dependency Injection for Java EE (JSR 299), including demos of major features.

This session will cover features such as injection, automatic context management, scoping, qualifiers, naming, producers, disposers, registry/lookup, stereotypes, interceptors, decorators and events. We will discuss the relationship between this critical Java EE 6 API covering generic dependency injection services and the rest of the platform including Dependency Injection for Java (JSR 330), managed beans, EJB 3.1, JSF 2 and JPA 2.

The major features of the API will be demonstrated in step-by-step running code using CanDI (, Resin's independent JSR 299 implementation.
