[interceptors-spec users] Interceptors 1.2 and constructor- and method-level interceptors

From: Marina Vatkina <>

This is a heads-up on the upcoming changes to the Interceptors 1.2 spec
to allow associating interceptors with a specific bean constructor or
lifecycle callback method. These changes will address the following
issues logged under the interceptors-spec JIRA:

     Add Constructor-level binding concept and proper @Target on annotations
     Method-level interceptors should include the constructor-level as well
     Method-level interceptors should be allowed for all interceptor types
     InvocationContext.getMethod method to return null only for the
AroundConstruct lifecycle callback interceptor

The changes are required to allow BV on a constructor and a choice of
@Transactional interceptor on a bean LC callback method.

Let me know ASAP if you have any issues with the requested changes.
