    Description

      Currently there is no way for observer methods to access the qualifiers of the fired event (i.e. to access @Nonbinding members).
      Consider the following example:

      @Inject @MyQualifier
      Event<MyObject> event;
      
      public void fireEvent(MyObject object, MyTypeValue type) {
          event.select(new MyTypeAnnotationLiteral(type)).fire(object);
      }
      

      Currently no observer can receive the value of MyTypeValue. I suggest to introduce an interface AnnotatedEvent that extends Annotated and contains this information. It then could be injected via the InjectionPoint like this:

      public void observeEvent(@Observes @MyType MyObject object, InjectionPoint ip) {
          MyType annotation = ip.getAnnotated().getAnnotation(MyType.class);
          MyTypeValue value = annotation.value();
          ...
      }
