FACES-3107, JSR 378 compliant versions of Liferay Faces Bridge were required to provide @Alternative CDI producers for Portlet 3.0 @Named beans that can be wrapped by factories.
However, due to the way Liferay integrates with CDI+OSGi, it is not possible to deploy a "thick" JSF WAR that relies on CDI+OSGi integration. When tried, it results in errors like the following:
This issue serves as a task for moving the bridge alternative producers to a separate module. By doing so, it will make it possible for a "thick" JSF WAR to include WEB-INF/lib/com.liferay.faces.bridge.impl.jar not NOT include the new module containing the alternative producers.
