Hi Karan,

Yes, this use case is absolutely supported, assuming that transaction
propagation is in effect.

If there is no transaction propagation, you can still achieve the same
effect if you pass a "live" object from one bean to another:

class SSBA {
pm = pmf.getPM();
SomeState ss = new SomeState(some, state);
Object bean = pm.getObjectById(theID);

class SSBB {
void B(Object bean);
pm = JDOHelper.getPersistenceManager(bean);
SomeState ss = (SomeState)pm.getUserObject();

Hi Michael,
 I am thinking of a scenario where it can be used. Correct me if i am wrong.
 lets say a stateless session bean (Container managed transaction), has a
 method A(){
 // get the pm
 pm.setUserObject(new Object());
 another session bean has
  method B(){
 //get pm
 pm.getUserObject(); //this should work
 assuming that the same transaction got propagated to B(), should we be able
to get the UserObject, because the second session bean should also get the
same instance of pm as the first one.
Let me know if this could be a usecase of get/set User Object

Hi Karan,

Hi Craig,
What happens to the user object once i close the pm?

I think nothing will happen. Accoring to the spec a user object is not
inspected or used in any way by the JDO implementation.

Hi Karan,

The UserObject pattern is intended for applications that need to
access some local state that is associated with the persistence
context. Any persistent object can navigate to its persistence manager
and access some application-specific data.

This turned out to be very useful in JDO, so much so that users asked
for finer-grained UserObject information: a Map of UserKey and

Hi Craig,
What is the purpose of get/setUserObject in the pm api? What would be
use-case where i would use these methods?
