Hi, My name is Sudeep and I know you first by your Head First approach with EJB. First of all Wish u a Very Happy NEW YEAR 2004. I have got stuck with a very simple problem... pls help me out. I am using Weblogic 7.0 with Oracle 9i. Trying to insert a row of data which has two values an "integer" and another "clob". There is an issue with Weblogic handling "Clob" using CMPs. A data in clob can be easily inserted using BMP beans using PreaparedStatement. As CMP's don't allow me to add data into database from ejbCreate() using SQL statements. I am trying to write the statements inside the ejbPostCreate(). Now my question is. As we already know that ejbPostCreate() runs under the same transaction as ejbCreate(). Will be it valid to enter data using SQL Statements ejbPostCreate().
