    Current Blocking Issues

    Weld BeanManager Injection fails (JBAS-7792)

    The new yet incomplete multi-namspace EE injection code breaks the hack weld was using previously. Resolving this requires the completion of the injection changes and a Weld update to use them properly. The EJB 3.1 preview capabilities planned for this release are also blocking on this.


    DONE

    EmbeddedAS Boot Failures

    http://community.jboss.org/message/535255

    We need to get EmbeddedAS into the distribution (so we catch errors alongside AS development), and this issue is currently preventing proper boot.


    HornetQ Integration

    The integration has recently been merged into trunk (hornetq-int), however integration issues involving MDB and management remain. Discussion can be monitored here.


    Remoting 3 integration in EJB3

    This is currently waiting on a resolution to the proxy design discussion here.
