We should provide a modern, easier-to-use API, probably using annotations and CDI. There seemed to be a variety of ideas of how we might do this, and we will need to explore these in detail. Whilst I think we mostly see this as a feature for Java EE containers, there seems to be interest in offering features to those using a Java SE environment as well.
