How to catch EntityNotFoundException

It seems that if I execute an EJB 3 query with JBoss and it returns an empty resultset, I cannot catch EntityNotFoundException. It seems that an aspect intercepts somewhere and does not allow me to respond.

I need to be able to detect in the session if the entity exist. If it does I update it. If not, I create a new one. I am testing the if not part but I can never get past EntityNotFoundException even if I catch it from the component calling the query.

Oh horray for aspect

What do you mean "cannot catch" it? JBoss certainly throws it and it doesn't get caught by anything else. Here's a method I wrote just last week:

I this is the case because I forgot to think about the case when the application starts and there are no inventory items to sum. I was getting EntityNotFoundExceptions.
