EJB 1.1 spec says "In Serialization,transient fields are always set back to their initial values of their field types, but in EJB, transient fields are not necessarily set back to their initial values but can maintain their original values or an arbitrary value, after being activated" - Richard Monson-Haefel.
Does any one know, how this is acheieved in EJB ?

IMO
A bean gets created with a new or is recycled instance of an object in the same class.
The container can ignore the transient directive, serialize and unserialize.
The container can follow the transient directive, not initialize the member. Now the value is arbitrary.
