    Web MD merge process

    Richard Opalka Master

      Hi Folks,


         I'm debugging one regression related to service references.

      I have service-ref element defined in web.xml


          <service-qname xmlns:ns1="http://serviceref.samples.jaxws.ws.test.jboss.org/">ns1:EndpointService</service-qname>


      I have empty jboss-web.xml


      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <!DOCTYPE jboss-web PUBLIC "-//JBoss//DTD Web Application 5.0//EN" "http://www.jboss.org/j2ee/dtd/jboss-web_5_0.dtd">


      And I have service reference with the same JNDI name defined in servlet


      public class ServletClient extends HttpServlet
         EndpointService injectedService = null;




      While debugging, I see:

      1) web.xml parsing deployer creates service ref MD from web.xml

      2) jboss-web.xml parsing deployer does nothing (because DD is empty)

      3) annotation processing deployer creates service ref MD from servlet

      4) web.xml MD are merged with jboss-web.xml MD




      While debugging I don't see MD created in 3) to be merged with MD created

      either in step 1) or 2) or in 4).


      Is this expected behavior? Why MD created in 3) are not merged with MD created in 4)?
