Re: [jakartaee-tck-dev] compatibility alert: Do (Platform TCK) tests that use Faces need CDI to be enabled (perhaps via empty beans.xml)?

I would like confirmation that the Faces 4.0 SPEC team agrees that all (Faces 4.0) application deployment requires CDI to be enabled which is a breaking change and probably should be added to the Faces 4.0 SPEC document.

Essentially Faces has required CDI to be available since JSF 2.3. Various features (such as custom data models) required CDI in that version.

So it's true that Faces 4.0 requires CDI, but it's somewhat debatable given its history whether that's 100% a new change in 4.0. Nevertheless we can add it explicitly in the spec that it's a strict requirement.

Kind regards,
