    Warning for potential parameter matching issues

    jaikiran pai Master

      Just recently a user found an issue with the AS 5.1.0 GA http://www.jboss.org/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=156075

      The issue is similar to what has been discussed sometimes earlier

      As discussed in those posts, its not possible to correctly figure out the constructor/method that is to be used. But i believe, its possible to write out a meaningful WARN message warning developers of a potential issue with the configuration because of the presence of multiple constructors/method that are a possible match. The issue in AS 5.1.0 GA could have been caught earlier had there been such a WARN message. In the previous forum discussion there was a task which talked about adding this WARN message https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBMICROCONT-40. The issue is actually resolved, but there are no WARN messages generated for the faulty configurations. Maybe something more has to be done?
