    Weld 1.1 beta and groovy do not play nicely together

    Jeff Howard Newbie

      Hi all,


      I've been playing around with Weld 1.1 beta2 and I've run into a pretty big issue.  I have an existing JSF project that uses weld 1.0.1 and contains a number of @Named groovy beans.  When I tried running the application using the weld 1.1 betas (both 1 and 2 do this) weld is not able to instantiate the groovy beans.  If I convert the beans to java then they work just fine.  Any ideas?


      Some details:
      The application starts up normally, no errors.
      Accessing (via EL) a bean property on a groovy bean generates a stack trace that is ultimately caused by this:

      Just to reiterate, this works fine in Weld 1.0.1


      Thanks!
