@PreDestroy annotation

Can I just use the @PreDestroy annotation for any void method inside any bean? Do I have to register it or something?

Because my @PreDestroy method won't be invoked.

I put it in a @ViewScoped bean. When I navigate away, the method is not called.

Any ideas why? I'm using JSF 2 on a Tomcat 7.
I agree. Here's the link:
