Vaadin CDI 1.0 alpha released

The first release of the official Vaadin CDI add-on now available in the Vaadin Directory:

This add-on permits the use of basic CDI (JSR-299) features such as dependency injection, CDI events etc. It also defines a new CDI scope for UIs and automatically configures a servlet for CDI if no Vaadin servlets are defined.

The implementation
is based on previous work by Adam Bien, Peter Lehto and Tomi Virkki (
CDIUtils add-on

This release is “alpha” for the 1.0, meaning that some things are subject to change, but because it is iteration of previous work, it already includes most of the important core features. All CDI fans and early testers are encouraged to test it and give us feedback.
