One of the really nice things about Weld is how nicely it works in Java SE. Of course, if you run Weld on its own, you won't get nice functionality like EJBs (you'll need an embeddable EJB container for that), but you do get a bunch of great stuff, including:
Here's a CDI portable extension that reads values from properties files and configures fields of Java EE components. In Java EE 6, this works for any Java EE component supporting injection, including servlets, EJBs, managed beans, interceptors and more.
A much-requested feature on this website has been automatic syntax highlighting of code snippets. It is now available and I thought I'd document it here instead of sending everyone an e-mail. The reason why it took so long to implement is that I didn't know how to best integrate it with the Seam wiki text syntax. As you know, we wrap a code block in backticks - that doesn't leave any room for syntax highlighting options. Other wiki text parsers use something like <code syntax="java">...</code> but I wanted to keep the superfast backtick syntax and have it highlighted.
In case you're like me, and you missed this when it was first published, check out Andy Schwartz's summary of what's new in JSF2. (Andy's one of the good guys on the JSF EG.) It's fun to compare the final product to my wishlist from back in '07. Oh, what innocent, carefree days...
