Oh, I thought @Priority was an EE6-EE7 thing and not part of the JDK. I
have concerns about this as well. There are a lot of slow moving
customers/users as it pertains to the JDK version they use. I told you
this before, but as recent as 9 months ago, I had somebody say they
coudln't use Resteasy because it wasn't compiled to JDK 5.
