Which are legal declartions for bean's ejbCreate() method?

B. public String ejbCreateAccount() throws javax.ejb.CreateException
D. public int ejbCreate()throws javax.ejb.CreateException

Why can not option D be the correct answer? Any ideas? thoughts?

Is this a question about entity or session beans? Either way, option D does not represent a valid signature. For session beans, ejbCreate() should have void return type. For entity beans, ejbCreate() returns the primary key type, which cannot be a primitive type like int. (Note that getPrimaryKey() returns a java.lang.Object!)

I agree. Here's the link:
