Part V. Web Beans Reference

Web Beans is the reference implementation of JSR-299, and is used by JBoss AS and Glassfish to provide JSR-299 services for Java Enterprise Edition applications. Web Beans also goes beyond the environments and APIs defined by the JSR-299 specification and provides support for a number of other environments (such as a servlet container such as Tomcat, or Java SE) and additional APIs and modules (such as logging, XSD generation for the JSR-299 XML deployment descriptors).

If you want to get started quickly using Web Beans with JBoss AS or Tomcat and experiment with one of the examples, take a look at Chapter 3, Web Beans, the Reference Implementation of JSR-299. Otherwise read on for a exhaustive discussion of using Web Beans in all the environments and application servers it supports, as well the Web Beans extensions.
