"Unsatisfied dependency" warning when injecting Conversation into backing bean

public class BackingBean
    @Inject Conversation conversation;

    public BackingBean() {}


Why is Intellij giving me a warning: "Unsatisfied dependency: no bean matches the injection point."

The CTRL+F1 detail message is "Detect injection points that have ambiguous dependencies."

It compiles and deploys and seems to run fine on JBoss e.g. I'm able to conversation.begin(), conversation.end(), etc.

was in my classpath, because the project compiled and ran fine after deployment.  It was just annoying to see the Intellij warning everywhere I injected Conversation.

I went to Project Structure --> Modules and selected my web module.  I noticed the CDI facet.  I clicked on the facet and noticed that neither of the two radio buttons were selected: Apache Open Web Beans or JBoss Weld.  I selected JBoss Weld.  Then, an error message appeared:

"The following libraries are missing: weld-api.jar, weld-core.jar, weld-logger.jar, weld-se.jar, weld-servlet-int.jar, weld-spi.jar, weld-tomcat-support.jar, weld-wicket.jar"

I clicked the "Fix" button.  A dialog opened, "Setup Library."  I had a choice: Use Library or Download.

I chose Download.

Intellij downloaded the eight jar files and installed them in my $PROJECT_HOME/lib directory.

Now, I don't receive any warnings when I inject Conversation.
