as7 modules and cdi problem

herb Newbie

I've a my.jar which contains cdi beans and cdi producer methods and a META-INF/beans.xml file.

Putting this jar to WEB-INF/lib in my war, the web app can use the cdi producer methods of my.jar.


Then I moved my.jar from WEB-INF/lib to a AS7 module and I added a dependency in the war's MANIFEST.MF:

Dependencies: com.mycompany


But now as7 reports

     org.jboss.weld.exceptions.DeploymentException: WELD-001408 Unsatisfied dependencies for type [BeanXY] with qualifiers [@Default] at injection point [[field] @Inject

It seams that weld does not scan my.jar which is loaded as as7 module. (instantiating BeanXY directly ("new BeanXY()")  works - so the module is loaded correctly)


Is there a limitiation that prevents the use of cdi in conjunction with as7 module?

Or is there an option to set?

Or ...?

    by default all modules won't expose annotations.

    to asure this, you have to explitly create jandex index of annotations and put it into your jar or pack it seperatly.

    for more on how to do this take a look at jandex https://github.com/jbossas/jandex  (there is also ant target to do that)


    after you have created this index and put it into your jar or as extra resource to your modle.

    you have to explisitly import annotations, so in your case you need in manifest entry like this:


    Dependencies: com.mycompany annotations


    hope it helps,

    Thank you for your reply - but it does not work for me


    Maybe I missing something:

    • I created a jandex.jar: <jandex run="true" newjar="true"><fileset dir="${deploy.dir}"/></jandex>
    • I put "my.jar" and "my-jandex.jar" to modules directory
    • I additionally added <resource-root path="my-jandex.jar"/> to module.xml
    • I modified MANIFEST.MF dependencies: "Dependencies: mymodule export annotations" (I also tried without "export")


    But I still get the above "WELD-001408 Unsatisfied dependencies"


    Any suggestions?

    this should work, the only thing looking fishy is the jandex task, that <fileset dir="${deploy.dir}" there should be just your jar file and nothing else


    you can run jandex manualy in command line

    by running java -jar jandex.jar and it will give you all options, but in general you need just to create index for your jar file that has annotations.
