I am using EJB3 and I need to call a class that initializes some configuration when the EJB container is initialized. This must be done before any EJB is called. Is there any way to do that ? I thought I could use something like the servlet container's context listener, but there isn't anything like that in the EJB container. Does anybody have a suggestion ?

Alex,
There isn't a "load on startup" type thing that I know of. Why not make a class that does the initial configuration and make it a static variable in your EJB. This will guarantee it runs before the EJB is called.
