Annotation Type LocalHome

public @interface LocalHome

Declares the local home or adapted local home interface for a session bean.

Clients written to the EJB 2.1 and earlier client view depend upon the existence of a home and component interface. A session bean written to the EJB 3.x API may be adapted to such earlier preexisting client view interfaces.

The session bean designates the local home interface to be adapted by using the LocalHome annotation on the bean class. The corresponding local component interface need not be explicitly specified, as it is derived from the return type of local home interface's create method signature.

Session beans written to the EJB 3.0 and later APIs do not otherwise make use of local home interfaces.
