Hi Antonio and Linda,
Does this "on any class in the application package" really mean "any
class"? Or, is this just trying to expand the current wording to also
include other component classes like CDI beans that are in the
application? I'm concerned about the implication of scanning every class
in the application for annotations.

Hi Linda,

I like the "on any class in the application package." makes it clearer and

Thanks for that

We've been accumulating a few fixes to minor errors in the Java
EE 7 specification along with some clarifications that we've been
discussing recently in the group. We plan to submit these to the JCP
as part of the spec Maintenance process. I've attached a list of the
proposed changes below.

Note that because these changes do not impact the RI or TCK, but only
update the current specification document, they do not define a new
spec version, but rather result in a "Rev A" of the Java EE 7

I plan to submit these to the JCP at the end of the week to initiate
the Maintenance Review process. Please let me know before then if I
missed anything or if you have any comments.

For your convenience, I have uploaded a draft of the spec
that includes the proposed changes to our project downloads area,
The changes are flagged with changebars in the relevant chapters.
