Regex with parenthesis doesn't work with resource locator

      When a @Path annotation that contains regex with parenthesis is applied to a resource locator it doesn't work correctly. For example, the following works correctly:

      @Path("{name: (works|WORKS)}")
      public Response works(@PathParam("name") String name) {
          SubResource sub = new SubResource(name);
          return sub.get();

      But the following does not, it returns a 404 error response:

      @Path("{name: (fails|FAILS)}")
      public SubResource fails(@PathParam("name") String name) {
          return new SubResource(name);

      I am attaching a simple application that reproduces this.

      The same application used to work correctly with JBoss 7 and Resteasy 2.3.2.
