Author: Jason Porter

What is it?

This example demonstrates the use of CDI 1.0 Injection and Qualifiers in JBoss AS 7 or JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 with JSF as the front-end client.

You can test the output at the URL http://localhost:8080/jboss-as-cdi-injection

System requirements

All you need to build this project is Java 6.0 (Java SDK 1.6) or better, Maven 3.0 or better.

The application this project produces is designed to be run on a JBoss AS 7.

With the prerequisites out of the way, you're ready to build and deploy.

Deploying the Application

First you need to start JBoss AS 7 or JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6. To do this, run


or if you are using windows


To deploy the application, you first need to produce the archive to deploy using the following Maven goal:

mvn clean package

You can now deploy the artifact to JBoss AS by executing the following command:

mvn jboss-as:deploy

This will deploy target/jboss-as-cdi-injection.war.

The application will be running at the following URL http://localhost:8080/jboss-as-cdi-injection/.

To undeploy from JBoss AS, run this command:

mvn jboss-as:undeploy

You can also start JBoss AS 7 and deploy the project using Eclipse. See the JBoss AS 7 Getting Started Developing Applications Guide for more information.
