Note that this tool window is available only if there is a library that implements CDI in the dependencies of one or more of your modules.

The CDI tool window provides a categorized hierarchical view of your CDI resources (beans).

At the top of the hierarchy are your modules. One level below are categories.

The categories correspond to bean types and qualifiers.

You can show or hide the categories. You can also open the elements shown in the tool window in the editor.

Showing and hiding categories

To show or hide a category, click icon viewMode on the title bar, and then click the necessary option.

  • Deployment Types. Show or hide deployment types.

Opening elements in the editor
