1) What happens when say in a ejb appln(stateful session & entity beans the no. of requests (active clients) exceeds max beans set in the deployment descriptor . I read somewhere that such requests will be queued. Could you ellaborate a bit.
2) Suppose we have a j2ee application using ejb where customers submit their complaints on the web. Any customer care person who views the complaint lodged can choose to respond back to the customer. But once a customer care person decides to respond , any other customer care person should not be able to respond to that complaint but should be able to view How to go about acheiving this in J2ee . Which pattern help in addressing the above issue. 3) What the difference between entity bean - cmp and o/r mapping tools like toplink & cocobase Are they competing technologies or both are designed to solve different problem areas
4) can an entity bean be both CMP as well as BMP .
