If you are not using seam managed persistent context then no way. You always can load assotiations in your stateless bean.
what do you mean by seam managed persistent context? you mean that i must not use the persistent Context injected by JBOSSAS, you mean i use POJO and not EJBs?
I am sorry, I do not undersand
You always can load assotiations in your stateless bean, how?
Standard EJB have @PersistenceContext annotation which injects EntityManager from application server. Seam creates it's own EntityManager and can inject it for you via @In annotation. To use SMPC you must setup in in components.xml. It is described in reference manual. If you have configured it as
entityMastathen in your code :
@In EntityManager entityMasta;
Loading lazy associations : iterate over collection holding that association.
