We're now really close to releasing a Community Review Draft for
Web Beans. The purpose
of the draft is to gather feedback on the component model,
dependency management model and extensible context model that we've
defined, and hopefully get people excited about Web Beans. We
also need to get our work in front of the other EE6-related expert
groups, so that they can start thinking about how they can possibly
re-use and integrate with some of the mechanisms we have defined.
However, the specification is by nature written in highly technical
language, so this blog entry is the first in a serious of articles
giving a friendly, introductory guide to Web Beans. When the
Community Review Draft is released, please take the time to download
and review it. But please read this series /first/.

and plugin architecture and test the overall stability of the platform.

Now, I'm always interested to read informed criticism, but in this case, Daniel seems to be comparing these brand new frameworks against Hibernate2, released in 2003, before I joined JBoss. He says:
I've been bloggingelsewhere about validation in Seam recently and been getting some good feedback regarding what has been found out by myself and others, so I thought I'd kick off my blogging here with a quick summary of what has been discovered.
