Annotation Type Asynchronous

public @interface Asynchronous

Marks a method as an asynchronous method, to be dispatched by the EJB3 TimerService. If the method returns Timer, the return value will be the Timer used for dispatching the method call. Otherwise, the method should return void. Note that asynchronous calls are processed in a different EVENT, SESSION and CONVERSATION context to the caller, so the actual recieving object may be a different instance of the component to the object that was called.
