Which of the following methods will cause an IllegalStateException when used from within the message-driven bean onMessage() method? [Check all correct answers]


Correct answers given are 1, 4 and 5.

But if you see API for EJBContext interface, this exception is NOT specified in throws clause for isCallerInRole() and getCallerPrincipal() methods.
Comments please.

javax.ejb.IlleglStateException is a unchecked exception. (So you dont have to declare it in a throws clause explicitly). This exception is thrown when you call a method of the EJBContext interface where you dont have access to the method you called. Eg. Calling getRollBackOnly() from a BMT MDB.

If you need further clarification and u r in reach of HFEJB read the exceptions chapter which will make it clear to u.

Best of Luck
