You're welcome. It's indeed pretty close for the case of just calling
a method asynchronously.

A somewhat more faithful clone of @Asyncronous would additionally need
to have (a new) request scope activated as well, but for the basics
this is pretty close.

Funny that you mention that as I just wanted to try that ;) But if
that would work at all, then I guess it's still by chance as I
wouldn't know in advance what things from the original context a
shallow clone would still reference. From the top of my head, I think
Weld indeed has the interceptor counter stored in another object
referenced from the InvocationContext.

Kind regards,
