OutDated Entity Bean Attribute Values!!!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!!!

The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, which you agreed to when you registered, described at . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.

I Hope This Helps
