What order will multiple @Startup beans be started in?
posted 4 years ago
I am using GlassFish 3.1.1 and EE 6. This seems like a common question but I haven't found a great answer yet. If my EJB JAR file contains multiple beans annotated as @Startup, is it possible to configure the order in which they are started? My guess is that if order is important, then I should just have 1 @Startup bean and make sure it does things in the order I want? Optionally, I know about <initialize-in-order> for the application.xml so I suppose I could create multiple JAR files and make sure the JAR files are configured in application.xml in order. Is there any other option? For example, is there another annotation which can be used in conbination with @Startup which will affect the order in which the container creates the beans?
