Hi Ranchers,
How does the container associate a stateful session bean with the respective client. In case of a webserver we use cookie to identify the client. What do EJB container use to identify the request for a stateful session bean and use that particular Stateful session bean to handle the request. Any specific protocol used ? I googled for this but didnt find any suitable answer Am I missing anything ???

If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you are right.

Hi Ramdas,

In Stateful session bean, client state can be stored in instance variable.
When client will invoke the create method in beanhome, it will send client specific details in argument and it can be stored in instance variable of beanclass create method. That���s why we use create method with argument in stateful session bean.make sure that beanhome and beanclass create methods map each other (create method with same arguments)and you are storing that client specific detail in instance variable of your bean class.By this way it will process the request for that particular client.
I agree. Here's the link:
