When reading documentation and articles where CMP/EJB is the subject, there is often reference to "coarse-grained objects" and "fine-grained objects".
So, my question(s) is(are) quite elementary:
Please define what constitutes a coarse-grained object and what is a fine-grained object. (Or point to a good url).
Thank you in advance,
Joshua
