This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
The client access ejbCreate through create method of EJBHome, as client cannot directly access the Bean Class.
This applies only for stateful session beans and entity beans. Stateless session beans ejbCreate() and the home interface create() have no relationship at all. When the client invokes the create() method on home, it only creates the EJB Object. The ejbCreate is invoked by the container, when it wants to add more beans to the pool.
