[JBoss JIRA] (CDI-716) Allow to recognize custom Bean at runtime

JIRA issues@jboss.org
Matej Novotny created CDI-716:

             Summary: Allow to recognize custom Bean at runtime
                 Key: CDI-716
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-716
             Project: CDI Specification Issues
          Issue Type: Feature Request
          Components: Beans
    Affects Versions: 2.0 .Final
            Reporter: Matej Novotny

At the moment, they only way to tell custom bean (created via {{BeanConfigurator}} or class implementing {{javax.enterprise.inject.spi.Bean}}) from "standard" one is to have an extension and listen to {{ProcessSyntheticBean}}. This is good enough if it's sufficient to tell the difference at bootstrap time.

However, at runtime, there is no way to do this.
We could add a method to {{javax.enterprise.inject.spi.Bean}} which would allow to tell the difference. The name of the method could be {{isCustom()}} or {{getKind()}}.

Generally, there should be no need to differentiate between custom/standard beans, but when digging deeper, it doesn't hurt to know. Putting this into {{Bean}} interface keeps it deep enough while still giving the information.
One of the use cases for this would be CDI-194, which could be "nicely" implemented (avoiding {{null}} values), if there was a way to recognize custom bean.
