If you are talking about a thin wrapper with the exact same methods as the entity bean, I can't think of advantages. If you are talking about a higher level, I can think of a bunch.
I read that Session beans that implement the SessionSynchronization interface can emulate some of the functionality of bean-managed entity beans Also, Entity Beans are transactional objects but Session Beans are transactionally aware but are not transactional objects. What does it mean?
