- when you use the standard beans.xml schema location in your beans.xml (referencing http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/beans_1_0.xsd) then WELD tries to look it up on the internet.
- Currently (10.10.2011) oracle seems to have technical issues with their web servers and returns an html error page when accessing the URL. this leads to a very long startup of our weld applications because of url retrieval timeouts and in most cases even leads to a stopping of the web application
-> in my opinion there should be configuration option (system property?) to turn schema validation of beans.xml off.
for production environments this is often not neccessary and maybe even will result in a speedup.
