Adding Business Methods to an EJB in NetBeans3 April 2007
Every EJB has some business methods that can be called after looking up the EJB by it’s JNDI name. To call a business method it should be declared in Remote Interface and the related EJB should have it’s definition. Manually adding a method to a EJB is not an easy task for a J2EE programmer. NetBeans provides an easy way for adding a business method to EJB so that it will be added to Remote Interface and EJB automatically. After adding business method you just have to write business logic in EJB class. Other configuration task will be handled by NetBeans.
Here are the steps to be followed.
- Assume you have a session bean named JavaTipsSessionBean already created in IDE. Right click on related EJB module and select “Business Method” option.
- Now add method name, parameters etc. Click “OK”. Code will be added to bean and to the Remote Interface.
- Now cursor will be automatically prompted to the business method in bean class, so that you can write your logic there.
You will see the following screen.
When this EJB will be deployed. Any remote client will be able to call this method.
It will look like this: Adding Business Methods to an EJB in NetBeans
