The Apache OpenWebBeans Team is proud to announce the release of Apache OpenWebBeans-2.0.18.

Apache OpenWebBeans-2.0.x is an Apache License v2 licensed implementation of the JSR-365 CDI-2.0 specification.

OpenWebBeans has a modular structure and provides Dependency
Injection scaling from Java SE environments up to Java EE8 server
clusters with complicated ClassLoader hierarchies or OSGi environments.

This is a maintenance release targetting the Contexts and Dependency Injection CDI 2.0 specification!

CDI is a JavaEE standard (JSR-365) but fully available under Apache License v2.0.

Apache OpenWebBeans-2.0.18 implements the CDI-2.0 API, and passes the JSR-330 and JSR-365 TCKs.
