Hi Yamini, isIdentical() on stateless session beans return "true" always. As far as the server is concerned all the stateless session beans coming form the same home are identical, which is not the case for the stateful session beans as they store individual client states, and hence in case of Stateful session beans its always false. On an entity bean it might return tru or false based on which entity the beans are refering to.
Hope that helps
