    Servlet 3.0: Annotation-Scanning although "metadata-complete=true" allowed?

    992264
      Hello,

      according Servlet 3.0 spec a "metadata-complete=true" in web.xml MUST deactivate the annotation scanning in deployment phase. That is EXTREMELY important for huge web applications. Is annotation scanning also forbidden while application STARTUP? Is the application startup part of the deployment phase in terms of the specification?

      Background - The following scenario does NOT work anymore for Websphere Application Server 8.5:

      Therefore IMHO WAS 8.5 isn't completely JEE6 conform. Do you agree?
