Why does this method call runs after the ejbCreate()?

You use ejbCreate() to initialize,
but not all resources are accessible yet.
So the ejbPostCreate() has been added allowing you to do the rest of your initialization with all resources available.
The extra things you can do in ejbPostCreate():
1) Get a reference to your own EJBObject.
2) access container managed relationships.
