An entity bean instance with container-managed persistence can be passivated when the bean instance is associated with a transaction.
Is it true?

Thanks,
Vijay

I think the answer is false. Beans only get passivate before the instance becomes disassociated with a specific EJB object. Therefore ejbPassivate() executes in an unspecified transaction context.

Hi,
According to Spec :-
The container can choose to passivate an entity bean within a transaction.
Before passivating it calls
1. ejbStore() ( which will be called within a transactional context)
2. ejbPassivate() ( this action does not really need a transactional context)

Where as a Stateful session bean will never be passivated within a transaction.

Vijay.

Ya Vijay is correct ..... from the spec P208 "10.9.3 Passivating and activating" the interaction diagram clearly shows that cmp can be passivated after ejbStore() is called.
