What are Handles in ejb ? Why is it used? I am not able to visualize a scenario wherein this will be used... Can anyone please brief me on this?

Thanks in advance.

Handle is basically a reference, it could be remote or home handle

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned this before, but your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.
