Given:
Home Interface
Remote Interface
EJB
My understanding is as follows:
1) EJB doesn't implement Remote Interface
2) Remote Interface is implemented by container
3) EJB is pooled
4) Object which implements Remote Interface is not pooled
5) Object which implements Remote Interface has reference to EJB and calls it's methods

Sounds like you have it about right. Summarizing from O'Reilly's Enterprise JavaBeans 3rd ed.:
  • Entity bean instances are definately pooled.
  • Stateless session bean instances are probably pooled.
  • Stateful session bean instances are not pooled.


  • I can't find any comments on pooling and message driven beans, but they are similar in some respects to stateless session beans, so I would expect there is some kind of pooling involved there as well.
