There is only one @PostConstruct and one @PreDestroy on a managed bean, correct? The part reading "Methods on managed beans declared ... must be called " should not be interpretted as allowing more than one of these?

If it is only one, and the user gives more than one, what happens?

If it is more than one, what order?

Also, "private" should be ignored in the part reading "The method may be public, protected, private" ? Do we file bugs in the issue tracker on against things that are not in the code base?
