[Jersey] [Jersey 2.x] how can I select the correct media type in WebApplicationException?

I have a server app that supports both XML and JSON as media type, using MOXy for marshalling and unmarshalling.

My problem is that I want to use the request media type in WebApplicationException (or rather my Exception derived from that), but I can't figure out how to get the request media type inside the constructor. The samples in the user doc simply use .type("text/plain")
