can another bean's methods and resource manager (like database) be accessed from ejbCreate() for a stateful session bean.Headfirst book (Chapter 4. Page:196)

1) can you please explain the bean things that can be done during ejbCreate(). For example, will ejbCreate() method have a transaction in CMT. If it doesnt have a transaction, then how is able to access another bean's reference and resource manager.

isCallerInRole, getEJBObject, getEJBLocalObject

BMT :
SessionContext methods: getEJBHome,getEJBLocalHome, getCallerPrincipal,
isCallerInRole, getEJBObject, getEJBLocalObject, getUserTransaction
UserTransaction methods

At this point, we cannot use CMT. CMT starts when we call methods which have a transaction context. But BMT can be used.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
