What's the advantage of the Bean interface model of EJB 3.0 over the pervious home/component interface model in EJB 2.x?

Some of the advantages:

- Ease of development in EJB3, since there is no longer the need for having Home interfaces.

- The required business interface for a session bean can be a plain Java interface rather than an EJBObject, EJBLocalObject, or java.rmi.Remote interface.

- Also, with the advent of annotations, there is no longer a need for deployment descriptors.
