ejbPassivate doubt

I understand that bean provider has to make all the non transient references Serializable or null before ejPassivate method ends (there are some exceptions to it like jndi context, session context etc). but what if bean provider doesn't make them null/serializable then what will happen?

will the container throw an exception or it's just that those things won't be recreated during activation?

Please reply.

thanks
Deep

Hi Deep

The contents of transient, non-serializable, non-null fields may be lost between the ejbPassivate and ejbActivate notifications.

Thanks
