I want to know what problems we get when we test our entity bean inside the container.
Each and every time we have to deploy our bean inside the container.It takes too much time.this is i think one problem.Is it really a big problem or not?

Plz tell me some related document abt testing problems in Entity Beans.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

What are you trying to test? It is a best practice to keep logic out of the entity beans, so that can be tested separately. There are often some methods in the bean to test (like returning a value object.) You can test these by just instantiating the bean from java. If you haven't already looked at junit, it is the standard framework for doing this. Regardless, you will want to test with the container at some point.
