public interface: SessionContext [javadoc | source]

All Implemented Interfaces:
    EJBContext

The SessionContext interface provides access to the runtime session context that the container provides for a session enterprise Bean instance. The container passes the SessionContext interface to an instance after the instance has been created. The session context remains associated with the instance for the lifetime of the instance.
Method from javax.ejb.SessionContext Summary:
getBusinessObject,   getEJBLocalObject,   getEJBObject,   getInvokedBusinessInterface,   getMessageContext
Method from javax.ejb.SessionContext Detail:
 public T getBusinessObject(Class<T> businessInterface) throws IllegalStateException
    Returns the session bean�s business interface. Only session beans with an EJB 3.0 business interface can call this method.
 public EJBLocalObject getEJBLocalObject() throws IllegalStateException

    Obtain a reference to the EJB local object that is currently associated with the instance.

    An instance of an entity enterprise Bean can call this method only when the instance is associated with an EJB local object identity, i.e. in the ejbActivate, ejbPassivate, ejbPostCreate, ejbRemove, ejbLoad, ejbStore, and business methods.

    An instance can use this method, for example, when it wants to pass a reference to itself in a method argument or result.

 public EJBObject getEJBObject() throws IllegalStateException

    Obtain a reference to the EJB object that is currently associated with the instance.

    An instance of a session enterprise Bean can call this method at anytime between the ejbCreate() and ejbRemove() methods, including from within the ejbCreate() and ejbRemove() methods.

    An instance can use this method, for example, when it wants to pass a reference to itself in a method argument or result.

 public Class getInvokedBusinessInterface() throws IllegalStateException
    Returns the session bean business interface through which the bean was invoked.
 public MessageContext getMessageContext() throws IllegalStateException
    Obtain a reference to the JAX-RPC MessageContext. An instance of a stateless session bean can call this method from any business method invoked through its web service endpoint interface.
