Accordint to one book:- "The create() method is invoked by the client to get a reference to the component interface of a session bean. It does not necessarily mean that a bean instance will be created upon receiving this call. If the bean is a stateless session bean, the container may already have created some bean instances and may use one of those instances to service the method calls. Or the container may wait until the client invokes a business method before it creates a bean instance." My question is, if a bean instance is created when business method is called then what will be the value of remote component interface between create and before the business method is called. Will it be null?
