In Listing 10‐3, the bean is instantiated at start‐up, and the manageTimer method is called. You
retrieve a collection of all the active timers and iterate over the collection, printing out the timer info
and the number of milliseconds that will elapse before the next scheduled timer expiration. Finally,
you cancel the timer.
Beans create timers within a transaction that the container manages. If this transaction is rolled
back, so is the timer. If this transaction is rolled back then the timer is also rolled back. This means
that its creation is rolled back and if it were canceled the cancellation would be undone and the
timer reinstated. In listing 10‐4 we show an example of a timer method marked with a transaction
