When I use in ejb-jar.xml:


and my EJB structure is:

//The business interface
public interface IStartup {
	void login();

//The "general" base class for all EJB´s
public abstract class AbstractEjb {
	public void onStart() {
		System.out.println("NOW STARTING UP");

//The EJB
public class StartupEjb extends AbstractEjb implements IStartup {
	public String sayHello(String nome) {
		return "Hello " + nome;

When this package is deployed, the log bellow was generated:

18:01:05,546 WARN  [JmxKernelAbstraction] jboss.j2ee:jar=startup-ejb.jar,name=StartupEjb,service=EJB3 is not registered
18:01:05,703 WARN  [Ejb3DescriptorHandler] No method found within StartupEjb with name onStart with the right signature for post-construct-m

18:01:05,890 INFO  [EJB3Deployer] Deployed: file:/C:/freeTools/jboss-4.2.2.GA/server/default/deploy/startup-ejb.jar

If I use de @PostConstruct over the AbstractEjb#onStart() method or if I override onStart() method in StartupEjb, all works fine.

Is it a bug or some mistake ?
