OutDated Entity Bean Attribute Values!!!

Something weird is happening to the entity beans in my database. I have a MBean which scans through all the rows in my database and makes changes under certain conditions (i won't bore you with them). e.g. Changing status="processing" to status="ready".
The changes are certainly visible when I look at the entity bean attribute values with simple SQL queries, but when I get a simple client to return the value with an entity bean getXXX() method, it retruns the OLD value, no matter how long I wait.
When I restart the server, I finally get the correct, updated value.
Could somebody please tell me how I can get the updated value without having to restart the server?
It seems that the beans get activated at server startup and never refresh their up-to-date attribute values before being passivated at server shutdown.
is there some ejb-jar.xml attribute i can modify so that entity beans refresh their attribute values constantly?
Thanks very much for your help!!!
