Subject Re: Regarding @Inject vs @EJB for EJB
Date Fri, 03 Oct 2014 13:30:41 GMT
Well I don't know exactly how EJB and CDI is managed internally by TomEE.
But using @Inject whatever the class is will mean that the lifecycle of
that instance will be managed by CDI container. On the other side if you
use @EJB the bean will be managed by EJB container, and this means EJB
lifecycle, and of course that your bean wil be transactional and you will
be able to apply security concerns.

Note that @Inject will make your bean be treated as POJO meanwhile @EJB
will mean that your bean will be treated as Enterprise Java Bean.

As I said I am not 100% sure but I think this is how it works.
