Get bean instance in CDI

In some cases it's required to get the bean instance instead of the reference.
You can simply do it with the following method:

public static <T> T getBeanInstance(final Class<T> type, final Class<? extends Annotation> scope, final BeanManager beanManager)
   final Context context = beanManager.getContext(scope);
   final Set<<Bean<?>> beans = beanManager.getBeans(type);
   final Bean<T> bean = (Bean<T>) beanManager.resolve(beans);
   final CreationalContext<T> creationalContext = beanManager.createCreationalContext(bean);

   return context.get(bean, creationalContext);


  1. PLEASE you can explique me when i would use the BeanInstance instead of the reference?
    A case use of it?

    Another question:
    how i can get a @ApplicationScoped BEan eager like the manaagedBEan of JSF but with OWB ?

    i would that the @ApplicationScoped Bean OWB it is created at web application startup.
    Like with the managedBean of JSF2 @ApplicationScoped(eager=true)

    But without the Ejb Singleton with annotation @Startup .

    I would get the @ApplicationScoped at startup web application only with OWB .

    i have read that it is possiblecreate a extension but not understand how to make it.

  2. UseCase: If you need to pass a bean to another thread.

    Eager Extension:
