Dear all,

the ejb core spec says (12.4.2, page 307):

A lifecycle callback interceptor method may catch an exception thrown by another lifecycle callback interceptor method in the invocation chain

Has anybody an example on how this works ?

For example, given the following interceptor class How would a lifecycle callback method in a following interceptor class catch myException ?

In an interceptor callback, you usually call proceed() to propagate the call down the chain. This is where you can catch an exception.

So if there are lifecycle callback interceptors
then the interceptor chain works (in principal) like
Now the usual java exception handling can be applied.
