Hi All,

Below is the Code for Singleton Session Bean and Client Servlet that accesses the Bean.

Singleton Session Bean


Client Servlet


Below is the messages logged server.log:




Request Issued:

http://localhost:8080/BusinessMethodInterceptors/
http://localhost:8080/BusinessMethodInterceptors/test.do

Here,BusinessMethodInterceptors is the name of Web Project.

As per my understanding,Singletion Session Bean is instantiated once per application per class.
However, in the server.log I see that it is Instantiated(Created) twice in application (See message "INFO: *** SingletonSessionBeanA - Created" is displayed twice)
Please advise if my understanding is incorrect.

Hi Mohit,

This is what I also noticed when I was preparing for the exam: the constructor of a Singleton is called twice (!). This is an implementation specific thing not mandated (or explained) by the specifications. The PostConstruct method is only called once luckily...
