Design Specification: Injectable Entity Listeners

ER 366748

Document History

Date Author Version Description & Notes
14 December 2011 Gordon Yorke Initial Document created

Project overview

Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI) was a JSR released as part of Java EE 6. CDI allows for container managed injection of artifacts into Java Objects. This feature will provide the functionality needed for EclipseLink to integrate with CDI to provide for CDI injecting into the Entity Listener. This will be a requirement in JPA 2.1


Present any concepts relevant to the feature.


Using CDI interfaces when available EclipseLink must pass an Entity Listener to the container to allow for injection. The specification covers the process and lifecycle.
