Hi,
I have an EJB project where I am using a SessionBean (stateless) to persist an item, the problem I am having is, when an item is added with the same primary key value, the method is supposed to throw a EntityExistException, but it is not throwing any exception, instead the caller is thrown a EJBException, I am calling this Session Bean from a different Web project. I tried adding try/catch block in the EJB to check what exception is thrown. The catch bloack doesn't get executed even when catching the generic Exception object. I am using container managed persistence? Could you please help me out with this please. Regards

Try just catching the RuntimeException, rather than the generic Exception object. You might find the true exception that is being thrown from your Hibernate3 code.
