    Asynchronous calls blocking?

    Hugo Pragt Newbie

      Hello all,


      Could you help me understand the workings of an @asynchornous call?
      When two calls are made to the same @Asynchronous method. Should the 2nd call wait for the first one to finish?


      Please let me give you some context:


      I've created a seam application which at deploy time starts a timed call on a SLSB.


      (@Observer("org.jboss.seam.postInitialization"))



      The method being called takes some time (just under 5 minutes in some cases).
      It scans a database table for new stuff and process those.
      The method is timed at a 1 minute interval.


      What I observe is tat a call to the method actually waits for the former call to finish.
      I expected a second bean taking the call in another thread and executed in parallel.


      Is my expectation wrong or have I made some programming mistake somewhere down the line?


      Hope someone here can enlighten me :)
