Last updated on JUNE 09, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version: 10.3.2 and later   [Release: and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms



In WLS10.3.2, injected JSF Bean is not calling methods annotated with @PostConsruct or @PreDestroy. 

Weblogic should honor this based on documentation. "The Java EE programming model uses the JDK 5.0 annotations feature for Web containers, such as EJBs, servlets, Web applications, and JSPs"

And from the  JSF 1.2 specification:

Section 5.4.1
In addition to the annotations from Section 14.5 of the Servlet 2.5 Specification, JSF implementations running in a Java EE 5 compliant container must support attaching the @PostConstruct and @PreDestroy annotations to aid in awareness of the managedbean lifecycle.
