Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v3 Application Deployment Guide


Specifies the maximum time, in seconds, that a bean instance is allowed to remain idle in the pool. When this timeout expires, the bean instance in a pool becomes a candidate for passivation or deletion. This is a hint to the server. A value of 0 specifies that idle beans remain in the pool indefinitely. Default value is 600.

Applies to stateless session beans, entity beans, and message-driven beans.

Note –

For a stateless session bean or a message-driven bean, the bean is removed (garbage collected) when the timeout expires.
