    what happens when ejb Timer service timeout happens before the finish

    K M Newbie

      Hello everybody,


      what happens when a timeout occurs before the previous timeout method execution finishes.


      For example, lets there is a timer which fires every 10 seconds.



      private void doSomething (Timer timer) {

           // lets say this method takes random time of up to 15 minutes to finish sometimes.



      Please enlighten me what happens here.. Does JBoss store all the fired timeouts in a queue or would it just let go if the previous timeout method execution is still on, and wait for the next timeout.


      Thank you,
