public interface: EJBHome [javadoc | source]

All Implemented Interfaces:
    Remote

The EJBHome interface must be extended by all enterprise Beans' remote home interfaces. An enterprise Bean's remote home interface defines the methods that allow a remote client to create, find, and remove EJB objects, as well as home business methods that are not specific to a bean instance (Session Beans do not have finders and home methods).

The remote home interface is defined by the enterprise Bean provider and implemented by the enterprise Bean container.

Method from javax.ejb.EJBHome Summary:
getEJBMetaData,   getHomeHandle,   remove,   remove
Method from javax.ejb.EJBHome Detail:
 public EJBMetaData getEJBMetaData() throws RemoteException

    Obtain the EJBMetaData interface for the enterprise Bean. The EJBMetaData interface allows the client to obtain information about the enterprise Bean.

    The information obtainable via the EJBMetaData interface is intended to be used by tools.

 public HomeHandle getHomeHandle() throws RemoteException
    Obtain a handle for the remote home object. The handle can be used at later time to re-obtain a reference to the remote home object, possibly in a different Java Virtual Machine.
 public  void remove(Handle handle) throws RemoteException, RemoveException
    Remove an EJB object identified by its handle.
 public  void remove(Object primaryKey) throws RemoteException, RemoveException

    Remove an EJB object identified by its primary key.

    This method can be used only for an entity bean. An attempt to call this method on a session bean will result in a RemoteException.
