> When there are multiple container errors (for instance, definition errors at startup), Weld cycles through the errors and builds a localized message. However, it drops the cause of the exception. If the message is further up the chain (i.e., in the exception cause), this leads to exceptions such as:
> Exception #0: null
> The user is lost as to what the real problem is. Typically root causes are:
> - NoClassDefFoundError
> - NullPointerException
> The problem is not that the message is null. The problem is that the underlying cause is dropped.
> This came up recently when using Arquillian as reported in this forum post: https://community.jboss.org/message/544395#544395
> When placed in a debugger, it turned out that a NoClassDefFoundError was being thrown. There was no way for the user to trace that to the source.
> I think that what Weld needs to do is follow the cause until it finds a non-null message.
