Asynchronous calls to Session Bean?

Is there any way for one session bean to call a business method on say another sessionb bean in an asychronous manner?
I do not want to use a MDB but would rather like to be able to call a method on a session bean asynchronously.
Can it be done?

Can it be done? Technically yes, but you would be breaking the restrictions set by the EJB specification (you shouldn't create threads).

Can we call a business method on another session bean, from a session bean, using <ejb-ref> ?

Yes we can, although you don't have to have an ejb-ref for the bean (it's a good practice but not mandatory).
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
