I had a quick question after reading the CMP 1.1 description in JBOSS. What was the intent of using tuned updates in JBOSS CMP 1.1. Was it in order to make sure that the container can just store the fields that are modified?
Also, what is the point of having abstract accessors under JBOSS CMP 2.0 - is that done for state modifications of the entity beans or are there other important usages for it?
