First off, I'm a newbie to ejbs, so i'm sure this will be easilly answered.
I have a table that I setup with several NOT NULL columns, including the column that has the primary key. When I "create(...)" my bean, does JBoss/JAWS automatically try to insert NULL values into every field, other than the primary key? Or does it wait until I'm doing setting any fields (setFirstName, setLastName, etc).
If so, is there a way to tell JBoss to not try to create the row until i've set my fields?
