Well, i was in a heated argument with one of my friends.The reason, whether Stateful session beans can be pooled or not.
My guru Haefel says it doesnt make sense in pooling stateful session bean and so the bean instance is evisted from the memory.
His guru Ed Roman says, stateful bean is pooled.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
