     [ https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-70?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Martin Kouba reopened CDI-70:

The spec states: 
"The container must use the operations of Annotated and its subinterfaces to discover program element types and annotations. The container must not directly call the Java Reflection API. In particular, the container must: call AnnotatedType.getConstructors(), AnnotatedType.getMethods() and AnnotatedType.getFields() to determine the members of a bean class."

However javadoc for *javax.enterprise.inject.spi.AnnotatedType.getConstructors()* states:
"Get the constructors of the type. If an empty set is returned, a default constructor with no parameters will be assumed."

IMHO this is contradictory.

> I think the correct behavior is to ignore any members that are missing from the AnnotatedType. You should not be directly accessing the reflection API at all. If the parameters for a method or a constructor don't match the underlying class, it should be considered a definition error.
