Hi ranchers,

True or false?

An entity bean instance with container-managed persistence can be passivated when the bean instance is associated with a transaction



The answer is true. I said false because the container usually throws an exception when the user tries to invoke a bean method while the bean is processing another method. See HFEJB page 558 Transaction Scenario 2 and page 559 Client Scenario 3.

Surely if the bean is associated with a transaction it is in an open transaction?

regards
Simon

I was going between true and false for a while.

But here is what I found in the spec. page 253.
"The container invokes this method with an unspecified transaction context.
Note that if the instance state has been updated by a transaction, the container must first invoke the ejbStore() method on the instance before it invokes ejbPassivate() on it."

When a Bean instance is associated with a trasaction, it
cannot be Passivated

My understanding is that entity bean can be passivated as per spec.
Session bean cannot be passivated.
