CreateException for entity beans

In Enterprise JavaBeans by Monson-Haefel it says on page 78 about entity beans:

"Although it is not required by the EJB specification, some J2EE application vendors insist that ejbCreate() throw a javax.ejb.CreateException..."

However, 10.6.4 in the EJB2.1 specification says about entity beans, "The throws clause must define the javax.ejb.CreateException..."

Can anybody clarify this point for me ? Is it a MUST for ejbCreate() to throw CreateException ?

BR,
Sven Thor

Hello,
The throws clause of ejbCreate must define the javax.ejb.CreateException for entity beans.[ EJB 2.0 and EJB 2.1]

hope it helps.

This is true for CMP beans, but BMP beans have the option to declare javax.ejb.CreateException.
