@ViewScoped

The @ViewScoped is specific to the MVC framework JSF, not to the dependency injection framework CDI. The view scope lives as long as you’re interacting with the same JSF view. CDI has not really a notion of “views”. The CDI alternative to that is @ConversationScoped which lives longer than the request scope, but shorter than the session scope. You only have to control the termination yourself. You can if necessary use MyFaces CODI to bridge the JSF @ViewScoped to CDI @Named beans. The upcoming JSF 2.2 will have a CDI compatible @ViewScoped in the javax.faces.view package.


@FlashScoped
The @FlashScoped doesn’t exist in JSF. The JSF flash scope exist of basically a map which is backed by a short-living cookie which survives HTTP redirects. You cannot let JSF put managed beans in this scope. You’ve to manually put/get the values in/from the map yourself and/or use the #{flash} reference in EL which basically refrences the map. Seam Faces has however hijacked the JSF specific javax.faces.bean package for its @FlashScoped annotation, but this is definitely not from standard JSF API.
