    Description

      1. CDI provides API to listen/observe for various stages of bean discovery and deployment, during which we can add additional types to be registered as managed CDI beans/interceptors/etc. however, there is no way to do the same (i.e.) register new types as CDI managed beans/interceptors/etc once the application is deployed (i.e. during runtime).

      it would be very useful if the spec is enhanced to also provide a runtime API to register new types as Beans or Interceptors.

      this is what we do currently:

      public void beforeBeanDiscovery(@Observes BeforeBeanDiscovery event, BeanManager beanManager) { 
              this.bm=beanManager;
              Set<Class<?>> klasses=get classes from from some non-jee-classpath
              AnnotatedType<?> annotatedType;
              for(Class<?> klass : klasses ) {
                  annotatedType = bm.createAnnotatedType(klass);
                  event.addAnnotatedType(annotatedType,klass.getName());
              }
          }
      

      something like the following will be of great use:

      @Inject BeanManager bm;
      AnnotatedType<?> annotatedType = bm.createAnnotatedType(klass);
       bm.addAnnotatedType(annotatedType,klass.getName());
      
      

      this simple API will help discover beans after deployment or from non-jee classpaths.
