Timeout will call @PreDestroy?

When a Stateful bean annotated with @StatefulTimeout times out,

will/should it call the @PreDestroy method?

I'm using glassfish, when my bean times out, it does not call my @PreDestroy method, is this a vendor specific behavior?

Hi,
@PreDestroy is not called when bean
1) Times out while passivated (Stateful beans)
2) Throws system exception that results in discarding the bean instance.

regards,
Amit

Thanks Amit!
In seems that in glassfish when @StatefulTimeout times out, it passivates the bean before the instance is removed, that's why i was not getting any @PreDestroy callback
