For everyone's reference,
there are discussion from Enthuware forum about whether the dd augment or override method permission:
http://www.enthuware.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=455

The specification has a conflict. It first says dd always overrides the values specified in annotation. Then, it says dd can augment the values specified in annotation.

For example, as I tried with GlassFish 3.1.2, <security-role> defined in dd overrides the @RolesAllowed in the bean. Meanwhile, there is a design that <security-role> in dd is an additional role that is permitted to access a particular method.

This can be an exam watch.
