JSR 318: Enterprise JavaBeansTM,Version 3.1. Pg122, Section 4.9.3
Compatibility Note: If the PostConstruct lifecycle callback interceptor method is the ejbCreatemethod,
if the PreDestroy lifecycle callback interceptor method is the ejbRemove method, if the PostActivate lifecycle
callback interceptor method is the ejbActivate method, or if the PrePassivate lifecycle callback interceptor
method is the ejbPassivate method, these callback methods must be implemented on the bean class itself
(or on its superclasses). Except for these cases, the method names can be arbitrary, but must not start with
“ejb” to avoid conflicts with the callback methods defined by the javax.ejb.EnterpriseBean interfaces.


If in the below code I replace @PostActivate and @PrePassivate with @Override, I receive the below,


If however I continue with @Override I receive the following,


Now there seems to be an obvious contradiction between what the Specification says and the behavior observed.
OR IS IT SOMETHING THAT I HAVE DONE/UNDERSTOOD WRONG??
