I need some advice. I have a stateless session bean that has no static methods or variables as mandated by EJB spec. However, I have plain java classes (helper classes) that have static methods. My question is : can I call these static methods (in helper java classes) from my session Bean? What about multithreading?
My belief is that once my bean method becomes live and calls static methods in my helper classes, it will never get preempted until this thread (ie, bean method) terminates. What happens when another instance of my stateless session bean becomes live too. Will this new thread interfere with the static methods of my helper class?
