Hi All,

Which method(s) run in the transaction context of the method that causes their invocation?

a) ejbLoad()
b) ejbRemove()
c) ejbSelect()
d) ejbActivate()
e) ejbPassivate()
f) setEntityContext()

Correct answers are a, b,c.

I thought answers are a,d,e. Can somebody please explain it?

Thanks,
Prashant

The answer can't be ejbActivate and ejbPassivate.

Because by the time ejbActivate() or ejbPassivate() is called,
the container no longer has you in a meaningful transaction context,
Thus, you can't be in a transaction at that point.

Business methods, home business methods and remove() of entity beans
should be running in transactions. I guess that's why
the answer is a,b,c

Thanx Kin. I understood the question wrongly.
