Re: [jakartaee-platform-dev] about the status of atinject

Hi Tom!

Yes, this is surely something to take into consideration.

Would the JCP maintain atinject? 
My answer is: no
We tried to have smallish additions for CDI-2.0 and also already had talks with a few of the involved people.
ccing Atoine because he also has a stance in this story and it would be great if he also might share his opinion on the topic.
Back then it was not possible to change anything as the EG did not come to live up again and Oracle doesn't own anything for atinject. So they simply will not touch it - likely ever. This is not legally an actual problem but only an extremely defensive position on Oracle side. Which is perfectly fine from their pov. Happy to be proven wrong, but I don't think this is likely to change.

So no, if there will ever be a change necessary, then we need other ways to deal with it for CDI, EJB, etc.

Otoh the compatility with javax.inject.Inject is practically deminished to people being familiar with the annotations.
Not much more. That's because an application or library written for CDI will never run on Spring or picoContainer. Or vice versa. Also moving javax.inject to jakarta.inject only for Jakarta will still allow all the other libs to use javax.inject IF they want. Ideally even allowing co-existance.

Makes sense?

LieGrue,
