Guys,

When reading through the EJB 3.0 book from O'Reilly, the chapter on Interceptors, I came across something interesting. On page 356, they call it Annotations with behavior. Is this going to be a kind of a pattern when using Annotations? To me it looks so.

Jothi,

Not sure about the specifics of what you are saying, but you might want to check out annotations meta-programming or stereotypes in WebBeans/Java EE 6. This is indeed an upcoming pattern.

Best regards,
Reza
