Can somebody give me clear definition WHY entity beans can't be BMT?

Pavel,

Entity beans involve with transactions and relation ships among other entity beans so any BMT bean can't accept the transaction or the transaction can't be propagated into BMT bean. I know Session beans also participates in transactions but session bean is like a process so there is chance that it can be independent itself and run the process but that may not be the case with Entity beans.So some times there is a chance to have BMT session bean/MDBs. So probably this is one reason. So that is why they make it compulsory for entity beans. the recommended way is Container even for Session and MDBs.
I too was having the same question and I think I still have.


Hope this helps a bit.

Thanks,
Ugender
