[cdi-dev] Should AnnotatedType also reflect inherited information?

My suggestions on this will make it clear for CDI 1.1:
With this clarifications the current implementation in OWB would be illegal since it introspects the superclass using reflection instead of using the AnnotatedType (which currently would not work, since the AnnotatedType does not contain this information).

The problem here is, that if the AnnotatedType does not contain information of superclass hierarchy (like currently in OWB), there is no way for Extensions to modify annotations of superclasses (i.e. add a qualifier to an @Inject-field or -method). Nothing seems to indicate that this was the intention of the CDI 1.0 spec ;-)

Kind regards,

I think the spec is not explicit on this question: Should the AnnotatedType delivered to the Extensions as parameter or via BeanManager#getAnnostatedType() also deliver information gathered from it's superclass hierarchy?

Sounds reasonable, but is nowhere explicitely defined. Thus I better ask ;)
