ClassCastException when running CDI+JSF 2.2.1 on Wildfly

Question asked by felipe1 on Oct 25, 2013
I am testing a webapp from the Activiti In Action Book which deploys a simple [Activiti](http://www.activiti.org/) process,some JSF pages and CDI Beans.

Everything works on JBOSS AS 7.1.1 + JSF 2.1.7. However I need to use JSF 2.2, so I tried to configure it on AS 7, but I stumbled on some errors described in [this jboss forum post](https://community.jboss.org/thread/203257). Bottomline: AS 7 and JSF 2.2 do not work together very well. So I tried to get my app up and running with Wildfly.

The startup went on without any relevant errors or warnings. However, upon navigating to a specific jsf page I got an ulgy exception:


    12:00:20,894 SEVERE [javax.enterprise.resource.webcontainer.jsf.application] (default task-8) Error Rendering View[/taskForm_newOrder.xhtml]: javax.el.ELException: /taskForm_newOrder.xhtml @18,51 value="#{bookOrder.isbn}": java.lang.ClassCastException: org.jboss.weld.context.SerializableContextualFactory$PassivationCapableSerializableContextual cannot be cast to javax.enterprise.inject.spi.Bean
