EJB 3.1 Specification



5.4.5 Message-Driven Bean Lifecycle Callback Interceptor Methods

The following lifecycle event callbacks are supported for message-driven beans. Callback methods may be defined directly on the bean class or on a separate interceptor class

1. PostConstruct
2. PreDestroy



Question :What does line "Callback methods may be defined directly on the bean class or on a separate interceptor class" means here ?

You can have an interceptor binding on top of the PostConstruct method, or in the Interceptor class itself

Method signature:
  • In Target class: void <METHOD>()
  • In Interceptor class void <METHOD>(InvocationContext)


  • in Target class

    in Interceptor class

    Hi Frits,

    Thanks for the reply.
    However,I am still not understanding your statement as my query was regarding "callback methods (PostConstruct,PreDestroy) defined on Bean class or Interceptor class" and your answers says about" Interceptor Bindings on PostConstruct method, or in the Interceptor class itself"

    Please advise.

    Oh yes, you are right they are talking about the lifecycle methods. Well here are the examples:

    in the Session bean class:

    or in the interceptor class (PostConstruct is not called from the EchoBeanRemote class but from its Interceptor)

    Regards,
    Frits
