EJB - Remote or Local (JBoss)

Hi gurus,

Quick question regarding the local and remote interface in EJB?

I am working on an application where we are using EJB's. We generate the necessary interfaces using XDoclet.

We annotated the EJB view-type as "remote" in the class level (Class level annotation will apply to all the business methods, so all the business methods will be viewed as remote from the client).

My coworkers are arguing that if we did not mention anything in the business method then the JBoss will treat them as "local" by default even though we mention the class level annotation as "remote" or not.

Is it true?...

Please assist.

Not sure, i understood the question right. Whether a local or remote interface has to be used, depends on the client which is doing the lookup. The client can either lookup the local interface or the remote interface.
