If i am writing a stateless session bean (e.g. HelloBean) to be deployed in J2EE1.3 RI server:
1. What are the classes generated by the container? What are their purpose? 2. What are the objects provided by the server (like EJBObject) ? 3. Where lies the stub, skeleton, business interface, home interface, EJBObject and the entity bean in the entire flow ? 4. If we have multiple stateless session beans(e.g. WeatherBean, JokeBean), do they all share the same instance of EJBObject or not ? 5. Does there exist multiple copies of EJBObject for multpile cuncurrent client requests for an enterprise bean ?
