Annotation Type Asynchronous

  • @Target({METHOD,TYPE})
    public @interface Asynchronous
    Used to mark a session bean method as an asynchronous method or to designate all business methods of a session bean class as asynchronous.

    An asychronous method must have return type void or Future<V>, where V is the result value type.

    Asynchronous method invocation semantics only apply to the no-interface, local business, and remote business client views. Methods exposed through the enterprise bean 2.x local, enterprise bean 2.x remote, and web service client views must not be designated as asynchronous.
