    Description

      Currently, the specification states these limitations on what classes are beans. Namely it mentions that:

      It has an appropriate constructor - either
      * the class has a constructor with no parameters, or
      * the class declares a constructor annotated @Inject.

      This effectively means that a class which has single constructor that is parameterized and does not have @Inject annotation on it will not become a bean. In fact, it will blow the CDI up. Just like this class:

      @Dependent
      public class Foo {
        // no @Inject annotation and no other constructor present
        public Foo(Bar bar) {
        }
      }
      

      Could we loosen the limitation and in the above case automatically assume (effectively add) the @Inject annotation?
