When I was testing the section 2.3.2 Servlet for the first part which dictates:

• If the Application subclass is annotated with @ApplicationPath, implementations are REQUIRED to use the value of this annotation appended with "/*" to define a mapping for the added server.

The following JAX-RS2 app bellow was failed to be registered and run by the Glassfish v4_b69, while it runs on Glassfish, by raising the following info message [failed to localize] jersey.app.registered.mapping(eg.taman.jcp.specs.rs2.test.app.MyApplication, /res/*)|#]" which it should be error not info message also.

The same if I added my custom application into the web.xml deployment descriptor.

Full error:

This is not an issue on the JAX-RS specification but on the RI (Jersey). It should be filed at jersey.java.net.
