I wanted to know,
1. Can we have static variables in Ejbs from J2EE point of view
2. Does it affect the performance?
Your help is very much appreciated.

Static variables are allowed, however you should never write to them due to threading and clustering issues. It is good practice to make any static variables that you may use in your EJBs final also.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
