* Call back methods cannot declare to throw Checked Exception.
* If done the bean will not be deployed and will generate an
* error as incorrect callback signature.
* Callbacks can declare to throw RuntimeException. If
* PostConstruct throws a RuntimeException, the bean instance
* is destryoed and PreDestroy method is not invoked.
* Business method can be declared to throw Checked exception.
* The bean instance is not removed from service.
* @throws Exception
* Business method can be declared to throw Runtime exception.
* When the business method throws Runtime exception, PreDestroy
* is invoked before the instance is destroyed.
* @throws RuntimeException

Please confirm, if the above statements are correct. I have verified them before coming up with these points.
I just want to confirm with the experts.

The 1st,2nd and 3ed statements are correct.

4th statement is wrong.

If the bean instance method ( Business or lifecycle callback method ) throws runtime exception, @PreDestroy callback method will not be called. It will be missed
