Does the EJBObject act as a skeleton?

Does the EJBObject perform the actions of a skeleton object (marshalling/unmarshalling), or is this performed by a seperate skeleton?

The client (of an EJB) generally have a stub that performs the RMI communication (i.e marshall unmarshall parameters). There is another stub on the server side for the same purpose.

And this stub on the server side is called the skeleton?

If so, does this skeleton forward the method call to the EJBObject?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
