This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
Now how is it that we get the old value of the attribute "a" even if we replace the value of the attribute a?
Is there a way, I could get the new, latest value of "a" the moment it is replaced? This could lead to a potential bug in a production code, not sure why it has to work like this.
