How To Discover All Deployed Beans


import javax.enterprise.inject.Any;
import javax.enterprise.inject.spi.Bean;
import javax.enterprise.inject.spi.BeanManager;
import javax.enterprise.util.AnnotationLiteral;

@Inject
BeanManager beanManager;

Set<Bean<?>> beans = beanManager.getBeans(Object.class,new AnnotationLiteral<Any>() {}));
        for (Bean<?> bean : beans) {
            System.out.println(bean.getBeanClass().getName());
        }

Enjoy discovering!

Cool! BeanManager is new for me. Nice to know. Tnx.
BTW the "private" keyword can be left out ;-) (http://www.adam-bien.com/roller/abien/entry/why_not_private_visibility_for)

I think there is something missing in the beans declaration. Am I wrong?

Nice one! Is there a recipe for Java EE 5, too?

Hi Ivar,

sorry for the bloat--I removed "private",

thanks!,

@Frank,

you are not wrong--I always forget to escape generics (lesser than, greater than characters) and they are going to be swallowed by the browser.

Not it is fixed!,

Adam, how can I get an instance of the bean.getBeanClass()?

I tried:

CreationalContext<?> creationalContext = beanManager.createCreationalContext(bean);
beanManager.getReference(bean, bean.getBeanClass(), creationalContext);

It worked, Is it right?

Thanks.
