I use the ViewAccessScope from CODI.
If I create a bean with viewAccessScope and link from a view (where the bean is called) to another view (where the bean is accessed too) and then go back to the original view, I expect, that the same instance of the bean is used. But at the time I go back to the original view in the Restore-View-Phase the instance of the bean is destroyed and a new one is created.
This behaviour only happen if I use the PROJECT_STAGE=Development AND implement a viewParameter to the view. So I think, that in Development-Stage the <metadata>-Tag or the <viewParameter>-Tag do something that brings the BeanManager to handle the beans in abnormal way.
There is a sample project at https://bitbucket.org/os890/myfaces-mailing-list/src/56d0ef922d12
