A concurrent access attempt that is not allowed to proceed due to locking is blocked until it can make forward progress.
Timeouts can be specified via metadata so that a blocked request can be rejected if a lock is not acquired within a certain amount of time.
220.127.116.11.1 Concurrent Access Timeouts
A concurrent access attempt that can not immediately acquire the appropriate lock is blocked until it can make forward progress.
@AccessTimeout is used to specify the amount of time the access attempt should be blocked before timing out.
Please let me know if my understanding of @AccessTimeout is correct or incorrect:
Suppose value provided in @AccessTimeout is 30 seconds for a particular Singleton Bean method.
If 2 clients try to access the bean method at same time for write operation,then one of the client call will be blocked for the period as specified in @AccessTimeout.
If the first client operation is completed within 20 seconds then second client request can be executed.
If first client operation takes more than 30 seconds ,then second client operation will time-out.
