I have an abstract entity bean class that have a string member named user:

private String user;

public String getUser(){
     return user;

In one of the subclasses I want to override the getUser method to do the following:

public String getUser(){
     if (user == null){
          return "nullUser";
     reutrn user;

I'm receiveing an Exception from jboss that I cannot override this method.

Is it allowed to override bean getters? what is the correct way to do it?
