Given that this method is supposed to be called on an Entity Bean only, why didn't the EJB architecture team consider exposing sub-interfaces like EntityBeanEJBObject, SessionBeanEJBObject ? so that the getPrimaryKey() method can be called only from EntityBeanEJBObject and not from others (any thoughts) ?
