We definitely don't check the annotations at runtime, simply because  
you can override them via the deployment descriptor so the "merged"  
set of meta data is the only safe thing to execute against at runtime  
(not if we expect to pass the tck anyway ;).  But as you point out we  
just check the module itself for @ApplicationException annotated  


Is the annotated exception class listed in any of the throws clauses  
of the business interface methods in module B?  (where module A has  
the exception class, module B does not)

If so, we could expand our support to looking there too in addition to  
scraping the module jar.
