Can some body explain the following :
If a lifecycle callback method for the same lifecycle event is also specified on the entity class and/or one or more of its entity or mapped superclasses, the callback methods on the entity class and/or superclasses are invoked AFTER the other lifecycle callback methods, most general superclass first.

Thanks.

That means that callback methods are invoked starting from the superclass (parent class) all the way down the hierarchy.

for example A super class of AA, both classes define a callback method for the same event e, so callback method of A is invoked first then callback method of AA.

Call back on Entity listeners will be executed first if specified, followed by Super classes and then the sub classes.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
