@PostConstruct – method is invoked when a bean is created for the first time.

@PreDestroy – method is invoked when a bean is removed from the bean pool or is destroyed.

23.What are the callback annotations for stateful bean?

@PostConstruct – method is invoked when a bean is created for the first time.

@PreDestroy – method is invoked when a bean is removed from the bean pool or is destroyed.

@PostActivate – method is invoked when a bean is loaded to be used.

@PrePassivate – method is invoked when a bean is put back to bean pool.
