Subject Re: CDI testing module

Hi John,

That's pretty interesting, the issue caused by the fact that in your test 
the Application class instances are Weld proxies, while in orginal test case
they aren't. As such, the @ApplicationPath annotations happen to be lost for Weld 
proxies, which causes address conflicts for JAXRSServerFactoryBeans. I will
try to figure out what are the differences ...


Best Regards,
    Andriy Redko
