Google Guice 4.2 → Weld 3.1

 

 

Guice hasn’t seen any major updates for over two years.

 

 

Weld is the reference implementation for CDI 2.0, largely inspired by Guice.

 

 

https://weld.cdi-spec.org/

 

 

The most important differences from Guice: :

 

 

  • No chain binding. Instead, we use annotations @Alternative et @Priority on classes.
  • @Transactional annotations are discovered at the injection poin

  • OAuth 2.0
