hi guys

We write create() in the home interface which extends EJBHome.But suprisingly, the create() doesnt exist in the EJBHome API, meaning the create() is defined by bean developer. So can i change the name of create() to createMyBean(). If yes, where else will i have to make changes?

It depends on the type of the bean that you are developing.
All the create methods need to have a matching ejbCreate in the bean class.

I think for stateless session beans you need to have only one no-argument create method.

thanks for reply asif

so if i change from create() to createMyMethod() in home interface, do i change ejbCreate() to ejbcreateMyMethod() for stateless session beans.

I agree. Here's the link:
