There are Bean Lifecycle Callbacks. For example, Stateless session beans have PostConstruct and PreDestroy while Statefull session beans have those, plus PrePassivate and PostActivate. Do these give you what you want?

No, they don't...What I'm looking for is an annotation that gives me the oportunity for make a call to a business function that I have in my app, but I only need to make this call when I'm deploying my app, the problem now with @Startup is that is only available in ejb 3.1 and my app is in ejb 3.0, so I'm looking for alternatives...One friend of mine says that maybe I could resolve my problem with @Service, but I haven't found much information, does anyone have an example or doc about this annotation???
Perfect! just one more question... what library should I include in my code in order to get this annotation work...because netBeans doesn't appear to recognize org.jboss.annotation.Service or org.jboss.annotation.ejb.Management...so what libraries should I include???
