Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-3452) Stateless Session EJBs cannot contain a remove() method

Stateless Session EJBs cannot contain a remove() method

                 Key: GERONIMO-3452
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: OpenEJB
    Affects Versions: 2.0.x
         Environment: Windows XP SP2
            Reporter: Aman Nanner
             Fix For: 2.0.x, 2.1

We have a stateless session bean that contains a "remove(...)" method that takes in a specific
type of array as a parameter.  It seems that the EJBObjectProxyHandler confuses this custom
business method with the Entity Bean "remove(...)" method.  Once the logic sees that a method
called "remove" is being called, it assumes that it is a "special" method instead of a business
method.  Here is a stack trace up to the point where this piece of logic occurs:

Thread [http-80-3] (Suspended)	
	StatelessEjbObjectHandler(EjbObjectProxyHandler)._invoke(Object, Class, Method, Object[])
line: 62	
	StatelessEjbObjectHandler(BaseEjbProxyHandler).invoke(Object, Method, Object[]) line: 320

	Jdk13InvocationHandler.invoke(Object, Method, Object[]) line: 49	
	$Proxy173.remove(FcModelKey[]) line: not available	
	FCRemoveTest.test() line: 75	

The following code in the EjbObjectProxyHandler looks up the name of the method from the dispatch
table and sees that it is a "special" method name.  However, this really only applies to Entity
beans and not Session Beans.  Therefore, case 4 is executed, and the StatelessEjbObjectHandler.remove(...)
method is called, which is empty and only returns null.

            Integer operation = (Integer) dispatchTable.get(m.getName());

            if (operation == null) {
                retValue = businessMethod(interfce, m, a, p);
            } else {
                switch (operation.intValue()) {
                    case 1:
                        retValue = getHandle(m, a, p);
                    case 2:
                        retValue = getPrimaryKey(m, a, p);
                    case 3:
                        retValue = isIdentical(m, a, p);
                    case 4:
                        retValue = remove(interfce, m, a, p);
                    case 5:
                        retValue = getEJBHome(m, a, p);
                    case 6:
                        retValue = getEJBLocalHome(m, a, p);
                        throw new RuntimeException("Inconsistent internal state");

            return retValue;

We have not run into this problem with JBoss and Weblogic.  I do not believe having a method
called "remove" on a Stateless Session bean is in violation of any spec, so this should work.
