All Assignable Beans dialog

The dialog for multiple hyperlinks for injection points has been improved. If there are a few assignable beans for the injection point then "Show All Assignable Beans..." menu is available when you Ctrl+Click on the injection.

Show All Assignable Beans... opens a dialog with all the beans which match the injection type and qualifiers.

It's possible to hide unavailable beans (shown by default). Show/hide menu is shown by default but can be hidden in dialog settings.

The beans can be filtered by name.

Other CDI hyperlinks (OpenOns) also have this new look and feel: Show All Generic Configuration Points", "Show CDI Events", "Show CDI Observer Methods"
