Annotation Type New

public @interface New

The built-in qualifier type.

The @New qualifier allows the application to obtain a new instance of a bean which is not bound to the declared scope, but has had dependency injection performed.

 @Produces @ConversationScoped 
 @Special Order getSpecialOrder(@New(Order.class) Order order) {
    return order;

When the @New qualifier is specified at an injection point and no value member is explicitly specified, the container defaults the value to the declared type of the injection point. So the following injection point has qualifier @New(Order.class):

 @Produces @ConversationScoped 
 @Special Order getSpecialOrder(@New Order order) { ... }
