data integrity with entity beans

Does anyone know a good resource that describes the concurrency management capabilities of entity beans? Specifically, I'm trying to find out:
Supposing I have an entity bean associated with a stateful session bean, I want to ensure that the fields mapped in the entity bean are "locked" for the session bean's lifetime--no other session bean can change the data, but reads are ok. Is this do-able with EJBs, or is this a db level issue?

You can just make the fields that you don't want changed blank final variables:
final String varIDontWantChanged;
and then assign a value to the variable in an initializer.
