5. Which are legal declarations for a CMP bean's ejbCreate methods?
d. public int ejbCreate() throws javax.ejb.CreateException
The book has it marked as not a valid declaration. I think it is, isn't it just overloading the create by returning an int? Can't I have something like:
public int ejbCreate() {
this.pk = pkGenerator();
return this.pk;
}

Hi Van,
As far as I have understood, the primary key need to be a class. So you can't use int for this.
See 10.6.13 for more details.
Don't forget also that you have to fill a <prim-key-class> element in the Deployment descriptor.
Regards,
Cyril.

thanks for the reply cyril,
so you're saying
- public Integer ejbCreate() throws CreateException ... is legal
- public int ejbCreate() throws CreateExecption ... is not legal
I'll take a look at the spec. Thanks for your help.
-Van

I agree with Cyril.Only Objects can be the primary key. Usually we use the wrapper classes. Note also, that the EJB API methods accept/return java.lang.Object type for the primary key
