(Doc ID 1435217.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 11, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle GlassFish Server - Version 3.0.1 to 3.1.1 [Release 3.0 to 3.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


According to the definition of ejb-container attribute:

However, in GlassFish 3.0 to GlassFish 3.1.1, if removal-timeout-in-seconds is configured to less than or equal to cache-idle-timeout-in-seconds, the EJB container passivates stateful beans instead of removing the beans immediately.

If there is application code that has @PrePassvate and @PreDestroy methods, @PrePassivate will be called instead of @PreDestroy.

Example or test case is available in GLASSFISH-16188.
