Hi ranchers,

Can any one tell me the difference between normal Java Beans and Enterprise Java Beans?

Thanks and regards

A simple answer would be to say that an Enterprise Java Bean is managed by an EJB container. It has some special powers, given to him by the container. A Java Bean is just a plain old class.
