Arne Limburg commented on CDI-70:

OK, but then the complete section should be more concrete. What about fields from superclasses, especially when a field of the same name exists in the subclass. I would expect that AnnotatedType.getFields() returns both, whereas I would expect that overridden methods from a superclass are not contained in AnnotatedType.getMethods(). But none of these things is currently specified.

> 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.
