Hi all. In entity EJBs, I have SQL(update) statements to write to persistent database in ejbStore. My problem is that my container, Weblogic's, calls ejbLoad and ejbStore continuously during the loading of any jsp page. Each jsp simply calls a "select" function from one of the entity ejb. However, Weblogic's performance is degraded tremendously by these database calls. Is it wise to remove the SQL-updates in ejbStore or add a flag in ejbStore to control whether to execute those updates at all?
It's OK to put logic into a bean that tracks when it has been modified and use that to determine whether to do the SQL update in ejbStore. In fact, WebLogic has an extension for CMP beans where the container can call a bean's isModified() method for exactly that purpose.
