Is PortableRemoteObject requried for EJB3.

I had created a session bean & deployed it on JBOSS Server. I created a stand alone client. I did not do any narrowing but it still worked. I modified by code, to include the narrowing part. It also worked. So is this narrowing required in EJB 3

It's considered good form for casting but as you saw it can work both ways.
