Annotation Type AfterBegin

  • @Target(METHOD)
    public @interface AfterBegin
    Designate a stateful session bean method to receive the after begin session synchronization callback.

    The after begin callback notifies a stateful session bean instance that a new transaction has started and that the subsequent business methods on the instance will be invoked in the context of the transaction.

    This method executes in the proper transaction context. A bean must have at most one AfterBegin method. The signature of this method must observe the following rules:

    • The method must not be declared as final or static.
    • The method may have any access type.
    • The return type must be void.
    • The method must take no arguments.

    A stateful session bean class may use either the SessionSynchronization interface or the session synchronization annotations, but not both.
