Hi,

Are session beans (stateless & stateful) being pooled in their lifecycle?
Thanks.

Only StateLess Session Bean are pooled in their life cycle.
StateFull Session Bean are passivated, it is a diferent thing.

Steven,

Look at this beautiful exercise sheet from Oreilly - http://examples.oreilly.com/hfjejb/EJBSharpenA.pdf
Page five has a nice matrix of different characteristics of the four different bean types.

It says about the pool:

Stateless Session Beans: Yes. Since they don't keep and client-specific data, you don't need one per each client.

Stateful Session Beans: Nope. Stateful beans never have a pool.

Entity Beans: Yes. When an entity bean is not *being* a specific entity (row from DB), it stays in the pool.

Message-driven Beans: Yes. They're a lot like statelss session beans. Any bean of a particular type is the same as any other.



Regards,
Dan
