OWB-1287 introduced a way to make the @Inject annotation optional if a Qualifier exists. But we have run into problems with this setting. It also introduces a slight performance degrading so we'd rather should make this an optional feature.
The problematic case is whenever another framework (in our case Mockito and in Maven modules) handles a field and also uses a JSR-330 Qualifier for it. With the implicitInjectionPoint feature the CDI container will overwrite mock objects.
