As we know stateful session beans are extension of client. When we lookup for Stateful session bean in Client, session bean gets tied to the client. Whenever client calls a method on stateful session bean, how is it guaranteed that same stateful session instance is returned?
does client pass any information/sessionId to server to identify the session bean instance?
Also do we have to use same reference to invoke session bean method if we want the same session bean?
How server identifies that request is coming from same client or different client?
