The Apache OpenWebBeans Team is proud to announce the release of Apache OpenWebBeans-1.7.0

Apache OpenWebBeans is an Apache License v2 licensed implementation of the JSR-346 CDI-1.2 specification.

OpenWebBeans has a modular structure and provides Dependency Injection scaling from Java SE environments up to Java EE7 server clusters with complicated ClassLoader hierarchies or OSGi environments.

The main change to OWB-1.6.x is that we now hava Java7 as minimum requirement. We also removed support for EE5 technologies like JSF-1.2, EL-1.0 and Tomcat6.

OpenWebBeans-1.7.0 implements the CDI-1.2 API, passes the JSR-330 TCK and the JSR-346 standalone and EE7 webprofile TCKs.
