Interceptor method on @Timeout method

I have something demonstrated on my system using JBoss7.1.1 application server, where I used EJB3.1 stateless session bean with @Timeout method with interceptor and it works! This contradicts to Frits Enterprise Java Beans 3.pdf document. Correct me if I'm wrong in the interpretation of the document.

In the document on page 42 it says,

@Interceptors({PrincipalLogger.class}) interceptor is not called on @Timeout method
public void timerSignal(){
System.out.println("Timer time-out");

Below is my code which works, (for brevity I have not added CalculatorLocal and CalculatorRemote classes)


Sample output -


I'm re-using the method log() as business method interceptor and @timeout method interceptor methods. Also, note that annotating backgroundProcessing() as @Schedule, also works fine!

Hi Naren,

interceptor is not called on @Timeout method

What I meant here is that a normal interceptor (one without the @AroundTimeout annotation) will not be called on a timeout. If you remove the @AroundTimeout from the CalculatorLoggingInterceptor, it won't be called on a timeout, right?

I will update that part of my notes to make it clearer.

I like your example!

Oh okay, I was sort of thinking that

I agree. Here's the link:
