I am pleased to announce the 1.0.0-M2 release of OpenWebBeans. OpenWebBeans will be an ASL-licensed implementation of the Context and Dependency Injection for Java EE Platform Specification which is defined as JSR-299.

This M2 release contains the parts of the specification that enables the developers to start and see more functional aspects of the JSR-299 than M1 release. Please look at the README file to get more about release information.

- M2 Release Supports the followings
* Simple WebBeans Support
* Producer Method Support
* Producer Field Support
* JMS WebBeans Support
* Inheritance, Stereotype Inheritances and Realization Support
* Specialization Support
* Event Support
* Decorator and Interceptor Support
* Experimental XML Configuration Support
* Lookup and Dependency Injection Support
* Java EE Plugin Support (via ServetContextListener interface)
* JPA Persistence Context injection support.(Currently does not support JTA based persistence context.)

This release also contains full blown JSF application which is developed by JSF + OWB + JPA.

In addition to the implementation of the specification, the project aims to create a new set of Web Beans exposing functionality of other Apache Foundation projects.

Feel free to ask any questions about the OpenWebBeans and M2-Release via our user forums.
