EJB injection doesn't work in JSF Convertor  RSS feed

Hi,
I'm using JSF with EJB. In my JSF managed beans, the dependency injection through @EJB annotation works fine. However, in my custom JSF Validator and Convertor classes, the @EJB annotation doesn't work. The annotated variable remains null and throws a NullPointerException later. Is there anything I am missing about dependency injection in EJB? I thought that I can use @EJB annotation in any container managed class (which JSF Validators and Convertors are).

Thanks for any input,
Vladimir

Seems that I was wrong. Resource injection works only in JSF managed beans.
http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2EE/injection/index.html

Supporting resource injection on JavaServer Faces technology renderers, converters, or validators is not desirable because that would violate Model-View-Controller (MVC) separation of these presentation objects. If these classes need to get access to resources, they should do so through a managed bean.
