Hi, I want to know which kind of business methods are better to put in the EJBHome interface ?
I read an EJB book. There one business method updateAll() is put in the EJBHome interface, not in the EJBObject interface . I don't know why, as you know, business method should be in the EJBObject.....

That's not a business method. It's a home method, which is like a "static" method for EJB classes (shared between all instances)...
