Startup beans service settings
Use this page to enable startup beans that control whether application-defined startup beans function on this server. Startup beans are session beans that run business logic through the invocation of start and stop methods when applications start and stop. If the startup beans service is disabled, then the automatic invocation of the start and stop methods does not occur for deployed startup beans when the parent application starts or stops. This service is disabled by default. Enable this service only when you want to use startup beans. Startup beans are especially useful when used with asynchronous beans.
To view this administrative console page, click Servers > Server types > WebSphere application servers > server_name. Under Container Settings, expand Container Services then click Startup beans service.
