Hello everyone,

I am building my web application with CDI and I want to inject my CDI beans into the controller without using @WireVariable. Is that possible in ZK? Every thread that I have searched only deals with @WireVariable which I do not prefer at all.

Is there any way to link my ZK frontend layer with my business layer using @Inject ?

I appreciate any kind of help!

regards, Ethernut

Yes it's possible, but not recommended.
Extend all your VM's from this :

package be.chillworld.web.common;

import org.springframework.context.ApplicationContext;
import org.springframework.web.context.support.WebApplicationContextUtils;

 * @author chillworld */
public abstract class AbstractVM {

    public AbstractVM() {

    protected final void autowire(Object object) {
                .initializeBean(object, null);

     * Gets the application context.
     * @return the application context
    protected final ApplicationContext getApplicationContext() {
        return WebApplicationContextUtils
