[JBoss JIRA] (CDI-712) Clarify whether is should be possible to "override" built-in Instance/Provider

JIRA issues@jboss.org

    [ https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-712?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13445672#comment-13445672 ]

Mark Struberg commented on CDI-712:
-----------------------------------

See also the following spec paragraph (1.0)
{noformat}
5.6.2. The built-in Instance
The container must provide a built-in bean...:
{noformat}

This is just a standard bean otherwise and no special rules apply. So why should one not be able to implement an Alternative for it? This is a perfectly legit use case!

> In theory, an extension could register an alternative custom bean to override the built-in Instance/Provider bean for injection points such as {{@Inject Provider<String>}}.
> It is not forbidden at the moment. The spec only states that there must be a built-in bean eligible for any injection point with Instance/Provider required type and any qualifier. See also https://docs.jboss.org/cdi/spec/2.0/cdi-spec.html#builtin_instance.
> It seems to be a powerful feature. On the other hand, it might be a source of confusion. Take for example this injection point:
> {code:java}
> @Inject
> @MyQualifier
> Instance<String> instance;
> {code}
> The qualifier is now considered when calling {{instance.get()}} and NOT when resolving the injection point.
> Note that the spec already allows to decorate built-in beans.
