I heard that in an EE environment (such as jboss 6), we should not programmatically create our own worker threads. However, I do have a need to spawn multiple threads using ExecutorService so that I can simulate and test many clients work concurrently with my services (weld managed beans).
If I spawn thread with new operator, the thread object cannot inject anything and it has lost all the cdi bean's functionalities and I understand this is expected.
So the question is: is there any way in java EE and weld that we can accomplish creating (explicitly or implicitly) worker threads? I thought @New thread in a producer might work but not sure now.
