I use jboss-3.0.0_tomcat-4.0.3 and design ejbs in session facade design pattern.
Fisrt I query some data from database and shows it in GUI. After some changes have made to GUI, I hope the container can get the parameters and then call the ejbStore to update database. How should I do?
I find that after calling find method the container will call ejbStore. Is there any other method will raise the container to call ejbStore?
And also, a cmp entity bean's life cycle seems like setEntityContext->activate->...-> passivate-> unsetEntityContext. I want to know when the container will call ejbUnsetEntityContext method? How can I finish an entity bean's life cycle?
Entity's bean state is synchronized with the data store when create or finder methods are called or at the end of transaction.
