Can an Entity Bean calls another entity bean? Or entity beans must be called by an application client or a session bean?

An Enity Bean can call another entity bean. Usually the entity beans are called from the session beans where the business logic will be in session bean. When you call from client, it is preferred to call thru the session bean to many Entity beans which are local to the container so that the expensive cleint calls could eb reduced.
I agree. Here's the link:
