CDI events are a very powerful feature that enable loose coupling in a very simple and type-safe way. One aspect of CDI events that surprises many folks is the fact that they are synchronous rather than asynchronous. The surprise is perhaps fairly natural as similar event systems are usually asynchronous. Piotr Nowicki explores the issue in a very well thought out post exploring the various options for making CDI events asynchronous using plain Java EE (more...)
